A Ghoulish 60 Seconds by Kathryn Fletcher

This morning at Cambridge Alternative Networking we had a spookily good time with some great guests and members alike. Things got pretty scary as the zombies arrived around 6:40am heading relentlessly towards the coffee machine, but once the caffeine and conversation kicked in – the cold impassioned faces glowed with smiles and witty banter!

Soon enough it was time for the spooky tales (60 seconds) from each of the members and visitors, but the most terrifying ghoulish 60 seconds was in no doubt… Kathryn Fletcher from Fletcher Thompson Chartered Accountants put the hebejebes into us all with tales of Tax and Accounts.. but, to help us avoid the horrors that otherwise could be!

Soo.. The ‘Chocolate Skull’ of terror was bestowed upon Kathryn in recognition of her truly terrifying ghoulish story – Well done!

Free mindfulness session for businesses and business people

Feeling stressed? Then this might be for you. Cambridge PR client Camyoga is inviting business people to take time out for a free session in mindfulness  on Thursday 20 June.

Taking place at Camyoga’s Cambridge Central studio, the session aims to help people learn mindfulness techniques, which, says Camyoga founder Louise Palmer-Masterton, are clinically proven to reduce stress and workplace tensions and increase innovation and leadership skills. “Mindfulness is being embraced by more and more companies and research shows that companies with a Wellness programme, such as Google, have happier and more grounded employees leading to greater success and a competitive edge for the company they work for.”

With mindfulness people become more familiar with the workings of their mind and are given learning strategies to help them slow down, be aware of their own reactions and become able to cope more easily with stressful situations. Adds Louise: “The techniques we use on our programme have been subject to widespread research and review showing that people trained in mindfulness achieve a higher and more consistent level of performance in high pressure environments.”

The session will take place from 9.30 to 13.30, and includes lunch. Businesses are invited to send one or two representatives and can book for the session at
