The Manc’s ‘takeaway with a takeaway’ event, launched with Deliveroo and Bruntwood, will be back this week with another inspiring guest speaker.

This month’s session will take place at Bruntwood’s beautiful Bloc building – and all attendees will get a free lunch from Deliveroo that celebrates the region’s amazing food and drink scene.

Speaking at the event on Wednesday 20 October will be Ngozi Weller from Aurora Wellness, which was created to enable good mental health and employee wellbeing in workplaces.

As well as the free lunch and the inspiring speech from the chosen experts, each session includes a networking opportunity at one of Bruntwood’s buildings around Manchester.

The first lunch club took place in August at Blackfriars House, where Christopher Owen spoke to attendees about what it means to be a good person.

Aurora Wellness says: “Forward thinking, conscious companies are changing the way they think about workplace and employee wellbeing. They’re beginning to shift away from reactive management of sickness absence and reduced productivity to proactive approaches to prevention through promoting wellbeing at work. And it all starts with communication.

“This is where Aurora Wellness consultants excel. We communicate clearly and concisely exactly how individuals can take responsibility for their own mental health and wellbeing, within the context of modern life. We have adapted the excellent evidence based research conducted by the New Economics Foundation (NEF) government-backed ‘Foresight Project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing’ to develop a pragmatic approach to wellbeing.”
