Ever feel like you're the only one?
Our guest speakers Kareena Hodgson and Mike Finch each have 20 years of lived experience as part of the entertainment industry. So it is fair to say that they have witnessed the ups and downs, the highs & lows, and the stress and exhilaration which accompanies this irresistible industry.
At the Friday Plenary, they will join us to talk about ways to improve well being to upgrade sustainability and general work/life balance.
They will explore common themes including the challenges of difficult financial times, management strategies, feelings of isolation as companies compete for contracts & sales. It’s not uncommon for people in the high-pressure small-business workplace to feel difficulty talking about their feelings or express vulnerability, especially about stress, anxiety and depression.
There will be discussion of some techniques that might be useful. They’ll talk about the benefits of incorporating some of these techniques into the process of sustaining small businesses, and how these practices may reduce stigma about mental health and benefit member’s sustainability in the workplace.
