Kent Collective Nov 2016: The Health of our Minds

  • 3 days ago · 6:30 PM
  • 1st Floor, International House

This month we are discussing the health of our minds. We will be discussing how everyday stresses can impact us and the steps we can take now to help improve our daily lives. We will also be talking about improving dementia care with new technology.

This month's speakers are:

Sam Dondi-Smith, Social Entreprener & Founder of Interactive Me

Sam is a specialist Occupational Therapist and founder of Interactive Me, a social enterprise supporting organisations to improve their person centred dementia care by utilising new technologies. Sam’s vision is to enhance compassionate care by joining the increasing need for personalisation together with current and new technologies. A passionate speaker and advocate for older people, Sam and is currently leading the development of the country’s first dementia friendly Community Orchard in Ramsgate, Kent.

Lucy Lucas, Yoga teacher & Mindfulness coach

After 14 years of finance in the City, Lucy used her yoga and mindfulness skills to navigate her escape. She has returned to her hometown of Tunbridge Wells, via some time in Ibiza, to set up her business as a yoga and mindfulness teacher and coach. She currently teaches locally and hold online courses, as well as teaching in corporations.

The event runs from 6:30 - 8.30pm, with free tea, coffee and biscuits available throughout. We run the Kent Collective like a mini TED talk but with a social twist, giving plenty of opportunity to meet like-minded people and discuss the topic with each other both before and after the talks.
