Managing relationships virtually: from teams to collaborators & networks!
For our first-ever virtual event, we choose a fitting topic – managing relationships virtually: from teams to collaborators & networks!
While managing relationships virtually is not new to our sector, the shift to intensive online working with the COVID-19 pandemic, has highlighted how the unique challenges of the virtual environment and how this requires a different skill set than face to face.
Relationship Strategist, Julia Palmer, shared some tips for how to stay more connected virtually, whether it be strengthening existing relationships, re-igniting and re-investing in your networks, or establishing new relationships and collaborations.

Julia has kindly made her slides available to FW Members.
Reducing Stress and Building Resilience
Working in our sector can be challenging and, for many of us, this has been amplified over the past few months of uncertainty and altered work patterns. In this 1-hour online workshop, internationally-accredited mindfulness and meditation practitioner Chelsea Pottenger, shared with us some practical tips and tricks for managing stress and building resilience, like starting the day right (spoiler: no phone!), building a meditation practice (just 10 mins a day), and saying no kindly, as well as calming techniques for short-circuiting catastrophic thinking.
If you want to follow the conversation from the event, check out #FWResilient on Twitter. There are also more resources available on the EQ Minds website and Chelsea’s podcast which explores topics around self-care and productivity.
These word clouds were generated as part of two polls that Chelsea asked participants to complete during the workshop.
A huge thanks to our event Partner AbbVie.
