Online Roundtable: Managing Social Anxiety & Hypersensitivity in Business

Online Roundtable: Managing Social Anxiety & Hypersensitivity in Business


Wednesday 24th July    
6:00pm - 7:30pm


Event Type

How many times in your business do you find social anxiety stopping you from attending networking events or setting up meetings?

Do you find that hypersensitivities leave you feeling vulnerable to rejection and fearful of big emotions, so you get stopped from expressing how you really feel?

Learning to manage your social anxieties and hypersensitivities might feel impossible, which is why it’s such an important thing for many of us neurodivergent folks to be aware of.

Because human connection is not only a fundamental part of maintaining our emotional health, it’s also essential for creating and sustaining professional client relationships and business connections.

In this roundtable, Joyfully Different Co-Founder Mark Blake will be joined by Rory Lemon, who helps heart-driven neurodivergent creative professionals navigate sensitivities and perfectionism so they can own their routines, habits and brilliance to inspire the world with their visionary creative projects.

Rory and Mark will discuss:

  • Why does social anxiety exist for hypersensitive neurodivergent people ?
  • How can we prepare to deal with our social anxiety before going to an event or meeting?
  • How can we deal with social anxiety when it arises in a professional context?

The event will last for 1 hour and 30 minutes, with rough timings as follows:

  • 10 mins – Welcome and time to settle in
  • 10 mins – Introduction
  • 55 mins – Questions & Facilitated Discussion
  • 15 mins – Closing comments, announcements & event end

Who is this session for?

This roundtable is open to any business owners, leaders or aspiring entrepreneurs who identify as neurodivergent or suspect they might be neurodivergent as well as anyone who wants to learn more about neurodiversity and mental health.
