YES ! There always be tasks and responsibilities and things that need to be done. We find ourselves in a  constant flow of completing these tasks and adding more and more to our daily responsibilities. Remember that you need time for yourself,  time for relaxing and refreshing. You need to put yourself first !


What can you do to REFRESH YOURSELF?

Drink a glass of water, take a walk in nature, practice mindfulness meditation, eat something healthy, read a book, meet caring friends who will make you laugh, take a nap and just relax and focus literally on YOUR BEING and YOUR WELLBEING. Tip of the day; “Do something each day that is different to your routine.”


Our refreshing journey as an OPEN SEMINAR event platform started in April 2017 in London. Organising events and gatherings for the purpose of sharing with each other, learning from each other and most importantly refreshing each other. Keynote speakers are enriching our OPEN SEMINAR gatherings by introducing themselves as well as their specific, unique and interesting up-to-date topics.


INTRO; these events are generally 2 hours long which is a valuable opportunity to get an idea about a special topic you are interested in as a participant. You will get to know the keynote speaker as well as his/her profession. Whereby a WORKSHOP is an interactive training,  involving expertise and experience sharing within an interactive learning environment which generally is a minimum of 4 hours or even longer practice.
