ThinkTree CPD Seminar Programme

ThinkTree Hub are bringing you world class talks, demos and workshops at this year's CPD Seminar Programme.

Divided between four themes: Mental Health and Your Wellbeing, Understanding Cancer Care, Your Health, and Business after Covid, each theme occupies half a day at the show.

Book yourself on a morning or afternoon session for just £10 per person, and all monies raised will be donated to the charity, The Healing Hands Network.

There is something for everyone to enhance both their career and their own personal wellbeing. Are you working with clients with cancer diagnoses and surgeries? Would you like to know how to get faster and better results from some of your therapies? Would you like fresh ideas? Do you have clients with anxiety who are struggling? Would you like to explore menstrual issues? Would you just like extra tools, energy and skills for yourself? This programme has it all.

Plus, you'll be sent a CPD Certificate worth 5 points per half day!
