Connecting Business – Growing Opportunities

Lets Talk about Personal Resilience



In partnership with Future Proof Learning, Causeway is pleased to invite our members, our fellow BITA members, or those interested in finding out more about our Causeway network, to an interactive online event exploring the topic of Personal Resilience at 4pm on Thursday 14 May 2020.


Now more than ever, we need to build our resilience, to get us and our teams through the times ahead.

This online event will cover some practical advice on what you can do (and stop doing) to build your resilience for the future, not just for the next few weeks. It will also look at the role maintaining and nurturing your networks can play in building and maintaining resilience, and also include insights from some of our Causeway members. 


This interactive and engaging webinar will be co-hosted by Causeway Director and Consultant Executive Coach Brigid Whoriskey and Future Proof Learning senior Consultant David Maltman and also include guest speaker Mike Stevenson from Thinktastic.

Please note this webinar will be recorded and shared at a later date.  By joining the call you consent to the recording and sharing of the webinar.

Mike Stevenson


Mike is a tour de force who surprises and delights in equal measure. Few are better at moving people to greater things and from the art of reinvention to stepping boldly into the future he never fails to inspire. His own journey from homelessness to award-winning entrepreneur is filled with remarkable people and events. His stories amaze and shock, his humour captivates and his insights will inspire. More than that, he lifts, he motivates and he shifts mindsets. He is founder of Thinktastic, an innovations agency, voted Scottish Small Company of Year 2008 and acclaimed for its unique approaches to stretching people and organisations beyond the ‘apparently’ possible. With more that 30 years in Marketing Mike has worked with a number of leading brand names including M&S, British Gas, Sky TV, SSE and Standard Life with each – the original brief was exceeded. Mike’s motivational work with schools was given special recognition on three successive years with a Business in the Community award for Raising the Attainment of Young People while his community investments made him one of only 21 UK company directors to be awarded the inaugural Community Mark. In 2011, he picked up New Start Magazines Better Places Award. He was a founder member of Glasgow’s Wise Group and then of multi-award winning creative agency, Design Links. Chucked out of school at 15, Mike spent many months sleeping on the streets of London, then racked up 29 jobs before his 26th birthday – his CV includes steelworker, wine bottler, hod-carrier, hospital orderly, biscuit packer and community worker. He also enjoyed a stint as a musician and actor. He is a TEDx and Leadercast speaker – recently joining the likes of Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder in a Transatlantic leadership event. He is a regular media commentator on leadership, modern marketing and innovation, an occasional columnist for the Sunday Times and a two-times host of Disney Institute Master classes.
