January – beating the blues

Back from Christmas in Las Vegas recharged and ready to sit down and determine client objectives for 2018, kicking off January with gusto didn’t go according to plan as Nicola’s husband lost his mum resulting in Nicola taking time to spend with Ian while re-evaluating and actually considering her own priorities for 2018.

In spite of the focus being temporarily on family first and business falling in behind, Nicola worked on an exciting top secret marketing plan and managed to beat the January blues with an exclusive piece for Business First on ‘Blue Monday’ from CEO of Moment Health, Nuala Murphy.

Moment Health

According to a review into mental health in the workplace commissioned by Prime Minister Theresa May in late 2017, mental health absenteeism has increased by 5% since 2009 and 300,000 people a year are leaving their jobs due to long term mental health conditions.
