The 2pm Project

  2pm blog header


A new online show designed to help you feel better and work smarter while we all get used to change.

There’s no sugar coating it. These are strenuous times for all of us. As we do our best, trying to deal with the impact of COVID-19, new challenges seem to pop up every day. Some of which include changes to our jobs and the way we work.

With so many of us trying to settle into our home offices (and trying to get the hang of mass video conferences), while also dealing with the uncertainty of a pandemic, we understand that a little support and guidance wouldn’t go astray.


That’s why we launched The 2pm Project – a weekly online show that will help employees and leaders:


–   Make sense of where we’re at

–   Learn ways to manage stress and promote wellbeing

–   Get ideas on how to remain engaged and connected

–   Find out ways to adapt and cope through our mindsets and behaviours

–   Manage remote working


The show streams live via YouTube at 2pm each Friday. Register to receive the weekly live stream links here.

It’s no secret that COVID-19 has dropped a huge bombshell on us all.

But when the dust settles, which of our new practices should stay within our routines and what have we gained from this experience?
