Welcome to our first edition of the JCI Nottingham Gazette!
A note from our local president
Hi JCI Members and Friends,

We have started 2019 with a bang! From forming new partnerships and gaining new members Junior Chamber International Nottingham is fulfilling the JCI Mission of providing development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.

I am delighted to be leading our chamber and creating exciting events for young professionals and students in Nottingham to attend. My council team, of all new members, have gone above and I am grateful for their support in making 2019 another amazing year for our chamber. Our theme for this year is “Inspiring Action” and we have pursued this vision in all our activities.

Phoebe Benta
JCI Nottingham President 2019 – “Inspiring Action”

What’s been happening so far?
We’ve been busy filling our calendars with networking events, training sessions and preparing for our Robin Hood Weekend!

We hope you’ve found our training seminars as inspiring and motivational as we have! We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our guest speakers, and to those who attended.

Bianca Boyce hosted our first training seminar of the year with a talk on ‘Goal Setting & Motivation‘ which covered the importance of living your life intentionally, and how to maintain a positive mind-set. This was a great session that really kick started our year.
We saw Mark Smith deliver our second training seminar on ‘Developing Your Business Idea‘. This was an insightful session which helped provide us with valuable tips for developing business strategy, and identifying a target customer.
Upcoming training:

In line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 3, Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, we have launched the #5minsmeditate campaign to help raise awareness of mental and physical health.

We want you to take time out daily and spend at least 5 minutes a day to meditate. You can do this at work, at home or with friends, taking time to think with no distractions.

Please use our #5minsmeditate on social media to help us make more people aware of the importance of looking after themselves.

We’ve already seem some great support, so please continue to share your photos and inspirational thoughts!

We are running this campaign until October 2019, leading up to our Mental Health Conference in Nottingham.
