Moving your workplace from clean to hygiene

Moving your workplace from clean to hygiene

Friday 19th March 2021

10am

Venue: online webinar


The ongoing global pandemic has focused attention on the importance of keeping your premises clean like never before. Almost all businesses now are investing in more robust cleaning regimes. But just because your premises look clean doesn’t mean that they’re hygienic or covid-safe. ‘Clean’ means free from visible dirt, but what about the viruses, bacteria and other pathogen that you can’t see? To deal with them you need to ensure your premises aren’t just clean but are also hygienic.


This is a free event

Sign up for this free webinar to learn more about how best to ensure your premises are not only clean but also hygienic and safe. In just one hour we will cover:-

Understanding the difference between something being merely clean and also being hygienic
How ATP testing gives you the data to accurately measure the real hygiene levels in your premises

Understand what is present and the risk levels you’re currently facing
Why the least hygienic places tend to be laptops, door pushes and desk stations rather than toilets and bathrooms
How you can accurately measure the improvement as your hygiene levels increase
Quantify hygiene level improvements so you can demonstrate progress to staff and stakeholders
Use data to drive conversations with third party cleaning suppliers

Moving from clean to hygiene with zero environmental impact

How room fogging and ozone cleaning enable hospital-level hygiene to be established in your premises without use of any harsh chemicals
Using room fogging to clean whole rooms as well as soft furnishings, clothes and other surfaces that are traditionally hard to clean



Who should attend?

My name is Shane I am a meditation, breathwork and mindfulness coach and I would love to share with you the first teachings I learned to un-f#@king my mind and saying seeya later to the negative and damaging thought cycles leading me out of depression and anxiety and in turn putting me on a journey to creating my own bliss.

7:00pm-8:00pm

April 1st | 8th | 15th | 22nd

This 4-week programme will give you the structure, teachings and information needed to kickstart your journey to the life you dream in all aspects – it all starts with understanding the mind and embedding daily routine.

This exact practice structure changed my life, but the difference is I have added many more informative tools, information and teachings that have boosted this programme to a whole new level.

The opportunity

This Life and Breath programme is the perfect opportunity to invest in your mental and emotional health. The programme is great for everyone including those who do not meditate but are curious about the practice, those who meditate but cannot seem to stick with it due to lack of knowledge and support, even those who are regular practitioners but would just like to be part of a wonderful group of human beings.

You will receive –

A structured practice plan and support
4 powerful meditations | We learn one each week
4 Incredibly nourishing breath work techniques | We learn one each week
MP3 recordings of the Meditations and breathwork to keep forever
Knowledge and learning tools | PDF work sheets to take away
Access to our private WhatsApp group for the programme
On completion access to the Jasper Tribe WhatsApp group
The Chance to receive a free Jasper Tribe SHHH my Souls is speaking T-shirt


The programme

The programme will run over a 4-week period which will consist of in-depth practice and discussion.

You will be asked to practice the breathwork and meditation that we focus on at our weekly session, daily throughout the programme to benefit as much as possible from the teachings.

The outcome

You will learn tried and tested tools and skills that have been setting people free for over 2500 years. What you will learn can certainly change your life, but the real work is up to you. We will share the space and support each other but dedication is a must if you want to get life changing results. Like anything it takes practice and dedication but with the knowledge I will share it will certainly make the journey and crystal clear one.

With dedication to this blueprint, you may –

Enhance self-confidence and self-belief
Superpower open-mindedness
Enhance awareness and clarity
Bring about calmer and relaxation
Boost happiness
Reduce stress
Reduce anxiety
Reduce depression
Reduce negative thinking and self-sabotage


With this new knowledge, structured plan, and your dedication this is a real opportunity to completely change your life and find your true self, your true inner spirit and open a universe of adventure.

My promise

If after the first 2 weeks you do not feel it is for you then you can leave with a full refund no questions asked.
I will always be around even after the course to answer questions and give any support I can through either personal WhatsApp or The Jasper Tribe group.
Throughout this course you will all receive my absolute 110% dedication to help you get the most from this practice.

Most small businesses are approached regularly by companies offering to help you appear higher in Google’s search results. Often they present SEO as a highly complex, technical process that requires a great deal of specialist knowledge, but in fact there are simple steps you can take to significantly improve the search ranking of your site yourself. Even if you decide not to do the work yourself, it’s useful to have an understanding of how SEO works when you’re dealing with SEO companies.

Sign up for this webinar and in just one hour we’ll give you an overview of how Google determines the rankings for sites and how you can use that understanding to improve the search performance of your own site.
What you will learn on this webinar

How Google search works and what Google looks for when deciding how to rank the pages on your website
Why your content needs to have quality, relevance and context and the importance of understanding what your customers are searching for
An overview of technical SEO
Why it’s important that your site runs quickly
The critical role of mobile friendliness
Checking your site for broken links
Running on HTTPS rather than HTTP
The benefit of a strong network of internal links on your site
Why it’s important to update your site regularly
On page SEO
Understanding how search engines read the pages on your site
Creating content that search engines will understand
What is ‘thin content’ and why should you avoid it?
Optimising your images for Google
Encouraging people to click through from Google search to your site
What are meta titles and meta descriptions and why do they matter?
Using the Yoast SEO plugin to edit meta titles and meta descriptions

Who should book onto this webinar?

This webinar is aimed at any small business or organisation that wants to better understand how Google Search works and what simple steps they can take themselves to improve the performance of their site on Google.

We work with WordPress so we’ll be using WordPress examples during this webinar but the bulk of the content will be equally relevant to any other website platform so you certainly don’t need to have a WordPress site in order to benefit from attending this webinar.

In this webinar we’ll go right back to basics and walk you through the whole website development process from start to finish, outlining the key decisions you need to make at each stage. We’ll help you understand what needs to be done, how much each element should cost, where you can do things yourself and where it’s probably better to get expert help.
