Local businesses, GP’s and practice staff are invited to attend an upcoming Breakfast Event in the Down County Museum in Downpatrick, hosted by Trackars Healthcare and taking place on Tuesday 27 February.

The breakfast event will centre around the importance of communications – in day-to-day life and in the workplace –  and will feature talks from esteemed business and career coach, Claire Bain and secretary of local suicide prevention charity Suicide Down to Zero, Pat McGreevy, who will deliver a talk on ‘The Art of Conversation – It’s Role in Suicide Prevention’, a topic that is applicable to everyone in the community and in the workplace.

The event will also mark the launch of a charity partnership between Trackars Healthcare and Suicide Down to Zero following its appointment as the organisations Charity of the Year for 2018.

Speaking about the event, Managing Director of Trackars Healthcare, Patricia Casement said: “Trackars understand the correlation between employee and customer engagement. We are thrilled to be hosting this seminar on communications and providing local employers and GP surgeries an opportunity to personally map and assess their business, taking home some valuable ideas.

“Business clinics are familiar to Belfast and larger towns and we hope that local business can benefit from this event.  The added bonus of having Claire Bain attend to deliver a talk on vital communications in the workplace, means this event offers a relevance to a wide variety of our Co. Down community.

“Suicide Down to Zero is a proactive charity and the platform to reach so many relevant people with the message of the important role that communication plays in this is a topic close to many of us.

“Speaker, Pat McGreevy will advise on first aid measures, free training workshops and signposting at this event.  This is an opportunity to make a difference for the better and we promise to make it an educational and refreshing event.

“From GP’s and practice staff to business owners, managers and social workers, people in all walks of life can contribute to preventing suicide. Suicide Down to Zero want to show  how these combined efforts can make a real difference in saving lives from suicide”.

Taking place at Down County Museum from 7.30-9am on Tuesday 27 February, the event is free to attend and will begin with networking and breakfast for all attendees before the speakers begin at 8am.
