1 in 4 people in England will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year (The Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey, 2007). The more we talk about mental health the more we break down the stigma and create a safe place for people to speak out about how they are feeling. Mental health problems can affect individuals very differently and be completely invisible to others.

“Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter”

Safety in the lab, working from home, employment law, contract disputes, Covid... company directors are now exposed to unprecedented liability for actions and decisions they make on behalf of their business.  This means direct exposure of the personal assets of your board members and key decision makers – including NEDs.

I haven’t written a blog before but have shared my story in case it helps others along on their journey.  They say sharing your story of how you overcome things is someone else’s survival guide!

What is a cytokine storm? 

Cytokine Release Syndrome (CRS), otherwise known as cytokine storm, is a systemic inflammatory response caused by complications due to disease, infection or an adverse effect of biologic therapy. The clinical symptoms of a cytokine storm are massive release of a potent cocktail of pro-inflammatory cytokines into the general circulatory system, leading to severe multi-organ damage, failure or potentially death. This is an extremely unwanted immunotoxicological side effect in drug development.

With the majority of Live Events being put on hold for the foreseeable future, event organisers have had to rapidly adapt, often struggling to cultivate the same levels of engagement from their audiences as before. Because of this, making the most of the various digital platforms available to us is incredibly important. At Giggabox, we don’t just think of attendees of the online events we host as ‘spectators’ or ‘viewers’, but as actual ‘participants’ themselves.
