Death in the Time of Corona with Transform Tallk

Event Information

It’s time to get better at dealing with death, so please join us for this event. A virtual Transform Talk #7 – Death in the time of Corona.

About this Event

As we watch the daily death toll rise, one major impact of Coronavirus is the recognition that we, or someone close to us, may die before we expected. This is creating a great deal of stress, anxiety and fear for ourselves and those we love.The issue of our own mortality has always been a difficult one to address. Of course, we all rationally know that we are going to die. We’ve just never been very good at facing that fact. Or talking about it openly with other people.

Unlikely as it is, Coronavirus has presented us with an opportunity. And it is one that we shouldn’t ignore. We need to learn how to talk about death and dying and how to build a better relationship with our own mortality. Equally, we need to get better at discussing death with friends and family and supporting the increasing number of people who will have someone close to them die.

The team at Transform Communications started planning this event long before Coronavirus. As individuals, we have experienced the tremendous grief when people we love dearly have died. We’ve had neighbours and friends face tragic circumstances. We have also had to face our own inadequacies in coping with death, grief, loss and every other emotion.

It’s time to get better at dealing with death and dying, so please join us for this event. A virtual Transform Talk #7 – Death in the time of Corona. We are hosting this as part of Dying Matters Awareness Week, which runs from 11-17th May 2020.

We are delighted that world-class speaker and writer Sue Brayne will be joining us. Sue is the author of ‘Living Fully, Dying Consciously’, which explores how confronting our fear of death and accepting our physical mortality, contributes to a much more conscious way of living. She also runs Death Cafés, where people gather (virtually for the time being) over tea and cake to talk openly about death.

‘Death in the time of Corona’ will be co-hosted by Tracey Stead, Leadership development consultant and coach. Tracey will explore our relationship with our own mortality, and also how we can support friends and co-workers who are faced with death or grieving for those who have died.

Veronica Hannon, MD of Transform Communications, will co-host a session where we look at our own relationship with mortality, how we can communicate more openly about death and the language that we use.

This will be an interactive session. Where you can ask questions, be supported in your own situation and come away with some practical ideas and suggestions about how to approach the difficult subject of our own mortality and ultimately death.

From this event you will experience:

  • An open discussion to talk about a difficult topic.
  • A sensitive approach, that also looks at the important role humour has to play.
  • Ideas for tools, resources and practical tips that can make this subject easier to talk about.
  • A few Dos & Don’ts when talking about death and how we can support others. We believe in sharing ideas and the power of interesting conversations.
  • That’s why we put on Transform Talks for free. We will ask for a donation when you book a ticket and we urge you to be generous.

For this event we are raising money for Dorothy House Hospice Care. Dorothy House provides fantastic end of life support to patients, carers and their families. Having witnessed first-hand the incredible care that their people provide in the most challenging of times, this is a charity that is particularly close to our hearts. And they are in drastic need of support during COVID-19. Please give generously.
