A Helping Hand

Awareness of NABS within the promotional industry is limited, but a deal with the BPMA means it is there to help, says Diana Tickell

NABS (the National Advertising Benevolent Society) has been working in the UK advertising, marketing and media industry for 105 years. Our century-plus of offering industry advice, support and guidance, at no cost to the employee, has helped countless people get their careers and lives back on track.

Here are five ways we could help you to thrive throughout your career:

Offering advice

Our expert advisors offer support and guidance on a whole host of workplace or personal issues, including stress, mental health and wellbeing, contractual and performance issues, redundancy and parental rights. Call them on 0800 707 6607.

Career coaching

Our coaches can work with you on a personalised plan to help address challenges and aid career progression. They can cover improving confidence and motivation, building resilience to stress, growing leadership and management skills, figuring out your next career move and much more.

Expand your network

Our events offer amazing sporting and social opportunities to meet and mingle with people from across the industry. Examples include the Ride Adland static cycle tournament, or NABS’ Stranger Than Summer – the greatest black tie event of the industry calendar?

Learn from the best

Our events are designed to offer insight and learning from some of the best minds within the industry, and outside it. Hear from Olympic coaches or from a hostage negotiator at our NABS Talks. Or learn how to build your own brand, or build more confidence and gravitas with our masterclasses.

Improve your wellbeing

We know how vitally important wellbeing is to ensure you don’t just cope, but succeed and thrive; at work and at home. We’ve developed our own evidencebased SHEPARD Model to Wellbeing – exploring all the elements we believe are necessary to find your own wellbeing. Only our fundraising networking events cost money, the rest are all free and open to anyone working within the industry. So why not take a look on nabs. org.uk, or give us a ring on 020 7290 7070 or email us on nabs@nabs.org.uk.\
