Author: Pandemic has shown importance of wellbeing
By Sarah Wood | 3rd December 2021
Award-winning author and consultant, Liggy Webb, was the special guest at the Healthy Workplaces Gloucestershire awards last night (December 2).
She is a bestselling author, presenter and international consultant specialising in life skills. She has been championing wellbeing for nearly 30 years.
Talking to guests at the celebration event, she said: "Sometimes there has been quite a bit of resistance, but I think if there was one benefit of the pandemic, it has certainly catapulted wellbeing to the heart of many organisations. There is so much more appreciation now of the investment - it's a solid business investment. There are so many dividends that are paid out from really looking after our people."
Liggy has worked as a consultant for the United Nations for 15 years and spent time with peace missions in Afghanistan. She has also worked with a wide range of businesses, helping people to be more resilient, agile and healthy in a volatile, uncertain and highly complex world.
Liggy has written 29 bite-size books and likes to make research practical and down to earth.
Her book Resilience: How To Cope When Everything Around You Keeps Changing is a practical and accessible guide for coping with change and offers advice on how to recover and flourish through challenging times. The guiding principles of the book were televised for a series with the BBC World Service.
