EQ Connects is a one of a kind, immersive conference that focuses on Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and the tangible benefits that developing your EQ can bring to your self and your organisation.

Our increasingly complex and uncertain world is demanding increased capability, not just in skills and knowledge, but in how to navigate change and stress in relationships.  Developing emotional intelligence in leadership and teams can dramatically improve well-being and performance, increase productivity and drive success.

EQ Connects is an opportunity for business leaders and coaches to gather in the UK to share ideas, experiences and research, to discover new tools and fresh thinking about emotional intelligence and explore the tangible benefits of developing EQ both personally and professionally. 


Whether you join as a visitor, as a sponsor or exhibitor, or as a speaker, there are multiple ways to get involved in EQ Connects. 

The event will be delivered as a hybrid event, offering delegates the opportunity to reconnect in a Covid-secure live environment, or to join virtually with a live stream ticket. You can also join us on the night prior to the conference for an informal drinks reception and 3 course dinner.

Following the conference, our partners will be offering a series of courses and workshops, allowing you to become a qualified Emotional Intelligence Practitioner. Full details here.

Emotional Quotent (EQ), otherwise known as Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a learnable, measureable skillset that fuels better effectiveness and wellbeing - resulting in improved quality of life and productivity.

Discover how to improve performance, and add value to your organisation through developing EQ in your business.

WHY me?

Emotionally intelligent people have excellent leadership skills. They have high standards for themselves and set an example for others to follow. They take initiative and have great decision making and problem-solving skills. This allows for a higher and more productive level of performance in life and at work.

WHY now?

Emotional Intelligence is becoming increasingly recognised as THE most important skill in our turbulent, fast changing and ever more complex world.


EQ is considered to be the differentiator between good and great leaders - between those businesses which will succeed and those which will not.

EQ Connects is fully accredited through the CPD Certification Service. Attendance will generate CPD points and all delegates receive a certificate as evidence for their records.
