Ouch attended the Dorset Chamber lunch at the Captains Club in Christchurch on the 10 April. The sun was shining and the event was buzzing with 10 tables full of Dorset networkers. It was great to see so many familiar faces and meet some new contacts.
Following on from the Dorset Business awards in 2018 where Ouch Training and our friends BWT Physio sponsored the Employee health and wellbeing award we decided we needed an event to share with others all the amazing things Dorset businesses are doing to support their teams wellbeing.
With the support of Anne Warner from the Dorset Chamber and with sponsorship from Hall and Woodhouse, together we organised a really positive morning of wellbeing on the 1 March 2019. The event was held at the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery site in Blandford. Liz Willingham President of the Dorset Chamber opened the event with Anthony Woodhouse. Simon Cassin, our Director talked about the benefits of the Middaymile. All of the Ouch team do this every day, whatever the weather with our four office dogs! We love it!
Other speakers included Gary from Blue Sky financial, Georgina from The West Hants club, Debbie from BWT Physio and Lucy from Organix, who won the Dorset Business Award.
There was also time to walk around and have a health check from Live Well Dorset, get your office furniture sorted from Osmond Ergonomics and have a go at hooping with Kim and even try yoga! We also had the fantastic team from Dorset Wildlife Trust, Hannah from Purple HR, Wessex water, Bournemouth and Poole college and Livability there to talk to the guests about all the aspects of wellbeing.
Thank you to everyone for making this morning such a big success and helping us to promote health and wellbeing in Dorset.
