Regional Groups

Regional Groups organise meetings, events and site visits and are open to anyone. All Institute members get invited to their local group events.

Regional Groups can organise visits to places you wouldn’t otherwise get easy access to such as Jaguar Land Rover, RNIB, Highways Agency, National Air Traffic Services.

Getting people to stand and move around at work – what works? – A 2015 review of the evidence.

Tim Hunter, Director, Fluto Ltd
The first part of the talk will provide a brief overview of some of the recent headline studies on inactivity at work. This will be followed by a discussion of some evidence based interventions designed to get people to stand and move around more at work. The presentation will finish with a summary of clinical take home messages and preview some exciting new innovations coming to the field.

There will be an opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from various industries in the south east at this free event. It is CPD eligible and is highly recommended for people who are keen to advance their careers by networking with peers and keeping up to date with the latest research. Book your free place here.
