BYP Network
Wellbeing, Finances, Work & Property
Hey BYP Network,
Over the past few weeks, we've been hosting a series of online events from Instagram Lives, YouTube Meet & Greets and webinars. We're excited to share that, over the course of June, we'll be bringing you a host of new events. From partnering with the virtual interactive expo, CogX to a special webinar with social media network, Facebook, we're hoping to keep you entertained, informed and encouraged from the safety of your homes. 
The coronavirus crisis has turned all of our lives upside down, and our wellbeing, work, finances and home lives have all been impacted. All of these are interlinked and the strain on any one of these areas will impact the others. None of us knows how long this situation will continue for, and as a mutual, Nationwide, the UK's second-largest mortgage lender, has a duty to make a difference.
Join us on 11th June at 7pm (BST) where we'll be talking all about 'Building Resilience - Life after Covid-19' with Nationwide. This free webinar will help us all improve our knowledge of finances, the property market, the economy and inform us on how our careers will be impacted, with Nationwide experts Pariss Sloan and Troy Bryan. Along with a panel discussion, there'll also be a Q&A session for our members to ask the experts at Nationwide any questions they might have. Don't miss out on this great event, make sure you sign up.

Have The Confidence To Start Your New Project
Tonte Bo Douglas
Feeling inspired to start up your own project whilst in lockdown? In this blog, our blog writer, Tonte Bo Douglas breaks down some of the wisdom from the inspirational entrepreneurs, including Celebrity Manicurist, Roxanne Campbell and TRIM-IT CEO, Darren Tenkorang, on our Confidence Is A Mindset Panel from last year's BYP Leadership Conference.
Confidence is all about being able to adapt to last minute surprises. In this period of COVID-19 and quarantine, the importance of being able to adapt is key for all of us.
