Start-up venture Talent Courtyard is offering free workshops to travel industry professionals who are staying at home during the coronavirus outbreak.

The online workshops feature wellbeing experts and are designed to help people to focus, de-stress and stay connected.

Described as a social enterprise, Talent Courtyard was founded to support professionals to “break everyday routines” and “to inspire a renewed sense of purpose”.

Andrea Meszaros, founder and director, said: “Talent Courtyard has been receiving increasing numbers of enquiries from travel industry professionals who find themselves working from home due to the rapidly changing coronavirus situation.

“During the next weeks, we are offering some free online creative wellbeing workshops for those working from home, to support people get creative, relax, de-stress and stay connected.

“We are also inviting furloughed employees of travel agencies and tour operators to join our complimentary workshops, to help them through this uncertain period. Our workshops help to improve an individual’s mood, stimulate their mind and ultimately enhance with their mental wellbeing.”

Talent Courtyard is hosting online sessions every day this week, and every second Monday starting from April 6. Click here for details.

Founded in 2019, Talent Courtyard hosts community-focused retreats and wellbeing events in natural settings, office environments and online.

The start-up was a finalist in Travel Weekly’s The £100k Pitch competition, which has postponed its judging process until later in the year.
