Overcoming Overwhelm - how to get out of the hamster wheel and start enjoying your work again

Join us live on Monday 3rd April for this exclusive webinar – purchase one ticket and your whole team are welcome to attend the webinar.

“To be overwhelmed means to be overpowered or overcome by a great amount of something, such as emotions, tasks, or information.”

Yes – we are back in “overwhelm” mode as the year unfolds – all members of the dental team are reporting that:

  • There aren’t enough hours in the day;

  • The task list is never completed;

  • They are constantly interrupted when trying to focus;

  • The “DND” signs are ignored;

  • They are exhausted most of the time.

In this environment only the well-prepared can survive – so Chris Barrow and Mark Topley would like to invite you to a 90-minute “special”, in which we will share with you some top tips and tactics to overcome your own overwhelm.

Hear what Mark Topley has to say:

“If you're feeling overwhelmed with the demands of work and life, then you're not alone. The good news is that there are strategies you can use to avoid and deal with overwhelm effectively. In this expert webinar, we'll share with you proven techniques for managing stress, improving focus, and boosting productivity. You'll learn practical tips for prioritising tasks, setting boundaries, and developing healthy habits. We'll help you to regain control of your life and establish a new way forward.”

And from Chris Barrow:

“I hear lots of owners and managers telling me that they “don’t have enough hours in the day” and that they are “too busy to get the important work done”.

Does that sound like you or anyone you know?
