Upcoming One Beat events
Preparing for Heart Surgery - Film Premiere
Saturday 9th February - London
We are very excited to announce the world premiere of our new 'Preparing for Heart Surgery' film series. Last year we worked closely with members of Teen Heart and One Beat, as well as healthcare professionals, to create 9 short films which will provide support and advice to young heart patients during their surgery journey.
The topics covered in the films include finding out you need surgery, beating boredom in hospital, your surgical team, heading home, going back to education or work and more.
We are very proud of these films and everyone involved in the production and can’t wait for as many of you as possible to see it. So don’t miss out on being one of the first to view them.

The Crystal Maze
For our final event of 2018 members of Teen Heart and One Beat came together for a festive Christmas dinner before joining forces to take on the ultimate TV show challenge and team building exercise…… the Crystal Maze!
Each team had to make their way through different adventure zones collecting crystals along the way and we’re very happy to announce that everyone escaped!
CV and Careers Workshop
On Thursday 25th October in London, we ran a CV and Careers workshop with the building and construction company Kier Group. During the day One Beat members had the chance to learn about the different career paths they can take, brush up on presentation skills and have their current CV looked at by recruitment professionals.
What makes a great interview?
On Saturday 15 September in Manchester One Beat members learned how to get ready for their next big job interview. In an interview skills session they looked at making a great first impression and dealing with challenging questions. Afterwards they used their brain power and some teamwork to successfully find their way out of Lucardo escape rooms.
