Online Welsh Business Conference / Global Business Summit – & 3 Mega Pre-Summit Business Networking Events

2020 marks the year of Introbiz’ first Online Global Business Conference, taking place from 25th – 27th November.

As one of Wales and the UK’s most ambitious, recognised business networks, established for nearly 12 years, and bringing over 7000 visitors to our annual exhibitions & events with global leading entrepreneurs, such as Grant Cardone & Lord Sugar, and connecting with Sir Richard Branson & other leading global entrepreneurs at Necker Island events etc, the COVID epidemic has only fuelled our mission to take the world by storm, even further this year.

Having built up 12 years’ worth of experience in providing industry-leading events, COVID put a stop to these in March 2020, when the whole country went into Lockdown, thus putting an end to the full year’s schedule of real-world networking events and businesses expo’s already booked in. Introbiz MD’s Paul Smolinski & Tracey Smolinski were faced with a difficult decision. Do they shut up shop and wait for the Pandemic to be over, or do they innovate, pivot, and look to rise and even thrive from the enforced situation. Being the optimistic fighters that they are, they chose the latter and switched their business to an online model as soon as the UK lockdown began.

Introbiz switched the membership and events model from real-world events to online events & online membership and continued on with their weekly events, utilising the zoom platform as their new venue of choice. Since March 16th, 2020 we have hosted over 50 online events with over 40 global speakers and sports stars that have pulled in thousands of visitors to our weekly online events. On top of providing networking opportunities, they decided to leverage their previous relationships, with best-selling entrepreneurship authors and educators such as Brian Tracey, Les Brown, Sharon Lechter, Dr. John Demartini, Jairek Robbins & Tom Ziglar, to not only speak at their events, but to provide leading world-class training and knowledge, and live Q&A sessions to get real-time answers and expertise to the real-time problems.

This successful pivot has inspired Paul & Tracey to create a Global Online Business Conference to create a global opportunity that is appropriately named; “Rise To Thrive”.

The “Rise To Thrive” Introbiz Global Summit is going to be one of THE online business events of 2020; offering current clients and the wider business community a virtual networking breakfast experience, and the opportunity to meet and greet global entrepreneurs and like-minded business owners like never before. We will be graced by the presence and wisdom of over 35 of the world’s most renowned names such as Les Brown, Sharon Lechter, John Demartini, Brian Tracy, Jariek Robbins, Tom Ziglar along with new additions such as; Rob Moore, Alec Stern, Camilita Nutall, Forbes Riley, Bob Burg, and Evan Carmichael, to name just a small handful over the three days.

Introbiz anticipates welcoming people from all walks of life to join the Online Business Conference, including our existing clients from professional services, hospitality, real estate, motor trade, leisure & tourism, and third sector to connect and to learn about the universal laws of health, wealth, success, relationships and connections.

Throughout COVID, Introbiz’ main aim has been to keep the economic wheel turning and to ensure that Welsh businesses remain inspired to connect, collaborate, network, and grow, and we hope that this one-off event will be a demonstration of finding the gift in adversity. Having reached over 25 countries so far, we aim to bridge the borders of our world through entrepreneurial spirit and progressive action.

Founder and MD of the Global Summit, Paul Smolinski says; “We are proud to bring over 30 world-class global entrepreneurs and speakers to the Welsh, UK and global stage during these tough times, and are confident that business owners will be inspired and educated in many strategies to help them to pivot and grow out of these uncertain times”.

We invite you to join us at our first Online Summit to get inspired and get connected.

BBC News Headlines from around the UK

Passenger at Heathrow international arrivals

Life takes another small step back to normality today, as quarantine requirements are dropped for travellers arriving in England, Wales and Northern Ireland from 59 countries and 14 British overseas territories. It means those who have been on holiday in Spain, France, Italy, Belgium and Germany will be exempt from the requirement to isolate for 14 days. A slightly different list of exemptions applies in Scotland, meaning people travelling from both Spain and Serbia will still have to go into quarantine, after First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said concerns about the prevalence of Covid-19 persisted. Scotland is also making the use of facemasks compulsory in shops.

However, despite World Health Organization warnings that the pandemic is still accelerating globally, across the UK lockdown restrictions are being eased in light of a declining number of infections. Ministers announced on Thursday that beauty salons in England could reopen from Monday, followed by indoor gyms and swimming pools on 25 July. Open-air concerts and theatre performances in England will also be permitted with “a limited and socially distanced audience” from this weekend.

Children’s playgrounds and community centres in Wales will be able to reopen from 20 July, while Northern Ireland has brought forward the reopening of indoor fitness studios and gyms, along with bingo halls, amusement arcades and cinemas. Scotland has begun to allow people to visit each other indoors and stay overnight, and has set dates for reopening bars and restaurants, hairdressers and barbers, and the tourist industry.

Some 20,000 deaths in care homes have already been directly linked to coronavirus. Now, Dementia UK and the Alzheimer’s Society are warning of a  “hidden catastrophe” among those in residential care, brought on by the “enforced separation” of lockdown. UK government advice – in place since April – to avoid visits in all but exceptional circumstances has caused a deterioration in residents’ mental and physical health, the charities say. They are calling on the health secretary to treat relatives of care home residents with dementia like key workers, by offering them the same access to care homes and coronavirus testing as staff. The Department of Health and Social Care says it will set out further details “shortly” on how it can “carefully and safely” allow visits.

Police stop-and-search tactics are often criticised as being used disproportionately against people from ethnic minorities. Now, the Independent Office for Police Conduct is to review whether officers racially discriminate . The head of the watchdog says it will “establish the trends and patterns which might help drive real change” in England and Wales, where stop-and-search powers are nine times more likely to be used against black people than white counterparts. Earlier this week, the Metropolitan Police apologised to athlete Bianca Williams over a stop-and-search incident. Cases are already being investigated in London, Birmingham and Greater Manchester in which it is alleged police used excessive force, and in some cases Tasers, against black men.

“We’ve always pictured having the big, fat Indian wedding,” say Vishal Panesar and his fiancee Ravika Sabh, almost in unison. Like thousands of couples, Londoners Vishal, 25, and Ravika, 24, had to postpone their wedding after the coronavirus pandemic struck.

It was meant to be a lavish affair with three separate events and 400 guests. But current measures imposed on weddings and gatherings mean the prospects of a big blowout are slim. Vishal and Ravika have cut down their guest list but are still keen to see whether a wedding with more than 30 guests is possible.Read full analysis >

“You’d better shape up,” says a Grease-inspired Metro, in its report heralding the reopening of England’s gyms and other leisure facilities. The Times echoes the government’s preferred slogan – “work out to help out” – while also reporting the prime minister intends to ban promotions on unhealthy food. Salons, which can reopen from Monday, are the focus of the Daily Telegraph, which says “normality edges closer”. Other papers focus on what the Daily Mirror calls a “jobs hell”, in light of Boots, Burger King and John Lewis saying they would cut staff. The paper says it brings job losses since the coronavirus crisis began to more than 150,000. The Financial Times says the announcements left Chancellor Rishi Sunak under fire, reporting that an influential think tank criticised his £30bn package to avert job losses as “poorly targeted”. Read the review.

Why you should Meditate?

The Many Health Benefits of Meditation

The popularity of meditation is increasing as more people discover its many benefits.

Meditation is a habitual process of training your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts.

This article reviews 12 health benefits of meditation.

You can use it to increase awareness of yourself and your surroundings. Many people think of it as a way to reduce stress and develop concentration.

People also use the practice to develop other beneficial habits and feelings, such as a positive mood and outlook, self-discipline, healthy sleep patterns and even increased pain tolerance.

Please find 12 health benefits of practicing the art of meditation…

Stress Reduction is one of the most common reasons why people try meditation.

1 study, which included over 3,500 adults, showed that it lives up to its reputation for stress reduction.

Normally, mental and physical stress cause increased levels of the stress hormone cortisol. This produces many of the harmful effects of stress, such as the release of inflammation-promoting chemicals called cytokines.

The effects of cytokines can disrupt sleep, promote depression and anxiety, increase blood pressure and contribute to fatigue and cloudy thinking.

During a 2-month study, a meditation style called “mindfulness meditation” reduced the inflammation response caused by stress.

Another study, on nearly 1,300 adults, demonstrated that meditation may decrease stress. Notably, this effect was strongest in individuals with the highest levels of stress.

Research has shown that meditation may also improve symptoms of stress-related conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder and fibromyalgia.

SUMMARY: Many styles of meditation can help reduce stress. Meditation can also reduce symptoms in people with stress-triggered medical conditions.

Less stress can lead to less anxiety.

For example, an 2 month study of mindfulness meditation helped participants reduce their anxiety.

It also reduced symptoms of anxiety disorders, such as phobias, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive behaviours, paranoid thoughts and panic attacks.

Another study, followed up with 18 volunteers 36 months after they had completed an two-month meditation program. Most volunteers had continued practicing regular meditation and maintained lower anxiety levels over the long term.

A larger study in 2,466 participants also showed that a variety of different meditation strategies may reduce anxiety levels.

For example, yoga has been shown to help people reduce their levels of anxiety. This is likely due to benefits from both meditative practice and physical activity.

Meditation may also help control job-related anxiety in high-pressure work environments. 1 study found that a meditation program reduced anxiety in a group of nurses.

SUMMARY: Habitual meditation helps reduce anxiety and anxiety-related mental health issues like social anxiety, phobias, paranoia and obsessive-compulsive behaviours.

Some forms of meditation can also lead to an improved self-image and more positive outlook on life. 

2 studies of mindfulness meditation found decreased depression in over 4,600 adults.

1 study followed 18 volunteers as they practiced meditation over 36 months. The study found that participants experienced a long-term decrease in their levels of depression.

Inflammatory chemicals called cytokines, which are released in response to stress, can affect mood, leading to depression. A review of several studies suggests meditation may reduce depression by decreasing these production of these inflammatory chemicals.

Another controlled study compared electrical activity between the brains of people who practiced mindfulness meditation and the brains of others who did not.

Those who meditated showed measurable changes in activity in areas related to positive thinking and optimism.

SUMMARY: Some forms of meditation can improve depression and create a more positive outlook on life. Research shows that maintaining an ongoing habit of meditation may help you maintain these benefits long term.

Some forms of meditation may help you develop a stronger understanding of yourself, helping you grow into your best self. 

For example, self-inquiry meditation explicitly aims to help you develop a greater understanding of yourself and how you relate to those around you.

Other forms teach you to recognise thoughts that may be harmful or self-defeating. The idea is that as you gain greater awareness of your thought habits, you can steer them toward more constructive thought patterns.

A study of 21 women fighting breast cancer found that when they took part in a tai chi program, their self-esteem improved more than it did than in those who received social support sessions.

In another study, 40 senior men and women who took a mindfulness meditation program experienced reduced feelings of loneliness, compared to a control group that had been placed on a wait list for the program.

Experience in meditation may cultivate more creative problem solving.

SUMMARY: Self-inquiry and related styles of meditation can help you “know yourself.” This can be a starting point for making other positive changes

Focused-attention meditation is like weight lifting for your attention span. It helps increase the strength and endurance of your attention. 

For example, a study looked at the effects of a 2-month mindfulness meditation course and found it improved participants’ ability to reorient and maintain their attention.

A similar study showed that human resource workers who regularly practiced mindfulness meditation stayed focused on a task for longer.

These workers also remembered details of their tasks better than their peers who did not practice meditation.

1 review concluded that meditation may even reverse patterns in the brain that contribute to mind-wandering, worrying and poor attention.

Even meditating for a short period may benefit you. 1 study found that 4 days of practicing meditation may be enough to increase attention span.

SUMMARY: Several types of meditation may build your ability to redirect and maintain attention. As little as 4 days of meditation may have a noticeable effect.

Improvements in attention and clarity of thinking may help keep your mind young. 

Kirtan Kriya is a method of meditation that combines a mantra or chant with repetitive motion of the fingers to focus thoughts. It improved participants’ ability to perform memory tasks in multiple studies of age-related memory loss.

A review of 12 studies found that multiple meditation styles increased attention, memory and mental quickness in older volunteers.

In addition to fighting normal age-related memory loss, meditation can at least partially improve memory in patients with dementia. It can also help control stress and improve coping in those caring for family members with dementia.

SUMMARY: The improved focus you can gain through regular meditation may increase memory and mental clarity. These benefits can help fight age-related memory loss and dementia.

Some types of meditation may particularly increase positive feelings and actions toward yourself and others.

Metta, a type of meditation also known as loving-kindness meditation, begins with developing kind thoughts and feelings toward yourself.

Through practice, people learn to extend this kindness and forgiveness externally, first to friends, then acquaintances and ultimately enemies.

22 studies of this form of meditation have demonstrated its ability to increase peoples’ compassion toward themselves and others.

1 study of 100 adults randomly assigned to a program that included loving-kindness meditation found that these benefits were dose-dependent.

In other words, the more effort people put into Metta meditation, the more positive feelings they experienced.

Another group of studies showed the positive feelings people develop through Metta meditation can improve social anxiety, reduce marriage conflict and help anger management.

These benefits also appear to accumulate over time with the practice of loving-kindness meditation.

SUMMARY: Metta, or loving-kindness meditation, is a practice of developing positive feelings, first toward yourself and then toward others. Metta increases positivity, empathy and compassionate behaviour toward others.

The mental discipline you can develop through meditation may help you break dependencies by increasing your self-control and awareness of triggers for addictive behaviours.

Research has shown that meditation may help people learn to redirect their attention, increase their willpower, control their emotions and impulses and increase their understanding of the causes behind their addictive behaviours.

1 study that taught 19 recovering alcoholics how to meditate found that participants who received the training got better at controlling their cravings and craving-related stress.

Meditation may also help you control food cravings. A review of 14 studies found mindfulness meditation helped participants reduce emotional and binge eating.

SUMMARY: Meditation develops mental discipline and willpower and can help you avoid triggers for unwanted impulses. This can help you recover from addiction, lose weight and redirect other unwanted habits.

Nearly 50% of the population will struggle with insomnia at some point.

1 study compared 2 mindfulness-based meditation programs by randomly assigning participants to 1 of 2 groups. 1 group practiced meditation, while the other didn’t.

Participants who meditated fell asleep sooner and stayed asleep longer, compared to those who didn’t meditate.

Becoming skilled in meditation may help you control or redirect the racing or “runaway” thoughts that often lead to insomnia.

Additionally, it can help relax your body, releasing tension and placing you in a peaceful state in which you’re more likely to fall asleep. 

SUMMARY: A variety of meditation techniques can help you relax and control the “runaway” thoughts that can interfere with sleep. This can shorten the time it takes to fall asleep and increase sleep quality.

Your perception of pain is connected to your state of mind, and it can be elevated in stressful conditions. 

For example, 1 study used functional MRI techniques to observe brain activity as participants experienced a painful stimulus. Some participants had gone through 4 days of mindfulness meditation training, while others had not.

The meditating patients showed increased activity in the brain centers known to control pain. They also reported less sensitivity to pain.

1 larger study looked at the effects of habitual meditation in 3,500 participants. It found that meditation was associated with decreased complaints of chronic or intermittent pain.

An additional study of meditation in patients with terminal diseases found meditation may help mitigate chronic pain at the end of life.

In each of these scenarios, meditators and non-meditators experienced the same causes of pain, but meditators showed a greater ability to cope with pain and even experienced a reduced sensation of pain. 

SUMMARY: Meditation can diminish the perception of pain in the brain. This may help treat chronic pain when used as a supplement to medical care or physical therapy.

Meditation can also improve physical health by reducing strain on the heart. 

Over time, high blood pressure makes the heart work harder to pump blood, which can lead to poor heart function. 

High blood pressure also contributes to atherosclerosis, or narrowing of the arteries, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes. 

A study of 996 volunteers found that when they meditated by concentrating on a “silent mantra” — a repeated, non-vocalized word, blood pressure reduced by about five points, on average.

This was more effective among older volunteers and those who had higher blood pressure prior to the study.

A review concluded that several types of meditation produced similar improvements in blood pressure.

In part, meditation appears to control blood pressure by relaxing the nerve signals that coordinate heart function, tension in blood vessels and the “fight-or-flight” response that increases alertness in stressful situations.

SUMMARY: Blood pressure decreases not only during meditation, but also over time in individuals who meditate regularly. This can reduce strain on the heart and arteries, helping prevent heart disease.

People practice many different forms of meditation, most of which don’t require specialised equipment or space. You can practice with just a few minutes daily.

If you want to start meditating, try choosing a form of meditation based on what you want to get out of it.

There are two major styles of meditation: 

  • Focused-attention meditation: Concentrates attention on a single object, thought, sound or visualisation. It emphasises ridding your mind of attention and distraction. Meditation may focus on breathing, a mantra or a calming sound.
  • Open-monitoring meditation: Encourages broadened awareness of all aspects of your environment, train of thought and sense of self. It may include becoming aware of thoughts, feelings or impulses that you might normally try to suppress.

If your regular work and home environments do not allow for consistent, quiet alone time, consider participating in a class. This can also improve your chances of success by providing a supportive community. 

Alternatively, consider setting your alarm a few minutes early to take advantage of quiet time in the morning. This may help you develop a consistent habit and allow you to start the day positively. 

SUMMARY: If you’re interested in incorporating meditation into your routine, try a few different styles and consider guided exercises to get started with one that suits you.

Meditation is something everyone can do to improve their mental and emotional health. 

You can do it anywhere, without special equipment or memberships. 

Alternatively, meditation courses and support groups are widely available.

There’s a great variety of styles too, each with different strengths and benefits. 

Trying out a style of mediation suited to your goals is a great way to improve your quality of life, even if you only have a few minutes to do it each day.
