Attendees of Belinda Waldock’s training and workshops for Being agile in Business often say they feel like a weight’s been lifted, a fog has cleared, and the feeling they had of being overwhelmed has gone. They leave the workshop feeling like they have clarity, focus and a positive way forward, that they can change if they need to!

So this workshop is all about doing just that, for whatever it is that’s stopping you, bugging you, nagging at you, or on your mind.

In this session we will explore agile approaches and how they can help us to better manage work and life, make things happen, keep a healthy balance and spot issues before they become a problem.


  • Gain a new perspective on change and uncertainty
  • Learn how to accept and navigate change
  • Apply simple tools to keep you organised and focused
  • Reflect and gain awareness of what’s putting the wind in your sails, and the anchors holding you back
  • Understand and adopt key agile concepts and principles
  • Gain practical experience of using agile tools and practices
  • Learn to apply and implement agile methods and practices
  • Identify when are where to take an agile approach

You will explore and apply the mind set and approach behind agile working, and its application to managing your mental health and well-being.

About Belinda:

“I have had my own experiences of taking an agile approach for my own wellbeing and mental health. In 2019 my business plans took a huge unexpected pivot. In the same year I met my partner Steve and became a parent to his two brilliant kids, we spent the pandemic together being agile, including my unexpected successful implementation of agile home school. Early 2020 the world froze and so did I, literally, with Long Covid, before we knew Long covid was even a thing, and it was an agile approach that got me through it and to full recovery. Then 2021 my business and world pivots again, more shifting business models, the challenges of being a working parent, and we welcomed a pony to the family who I have very much enjoyed being agile on the past year. I believe agile methods have helped get me through this rollercoaster of change and uncertainty.

In the session I’ll share with you the foundations of the agile mindset and method, help you get started with your own agile plan, and share stories and insights into how agile can help us find a way forward, even in the most uncertain of times.”

This webinar is offered as part of Hayle Business Week and is organised by Hayle Town Council to support the business community.
