Act Positive lead the way at Emotional Intelligence conference

Brighton Road Studios tenant Katharine Roff of Act Positive led the UK delegation to Nexus EQ, an international conference for Emotional Intelligence this June at Harvard in Boston.

The conference was a rare opportunity for people working in the areas of human development to share latest research, case studies and emerging practice looking at the impact of emotions in people performance.

What is emotional intelligence, I hear you ask? Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to recognise and navigate emotions to achieve better life experience and performance.
