Corporate Health & Wellbeing Summit 2017


Welcome to 'The Science of Connection: Working Well Together'

Led by: Dr Jenny Brockis

This full-day masterclass will be held on Monday 27 November 2017

In this invaluable one-day masterclass, find out how you, as a business leader, can build greater engagement, trust and performance by fostering the creation of working relationships that provide meaning and purpose. The human cost of business: absenteeism, presenteeism, high staff turnover and loss of talent are just a few of the big challenges facing business today. While awareness of the size and cost of the problem is important, what matters most is the development and implementation of effective strategies to reduce this burden and elevate performance, productivity and collaboration. This masterclass provides the essential toolkit to do so.

Dr Jenny Brockis is an expert in human behaviour and brain fitness: what it takes for individuals and organisations to stay brain healthy, eliminate poor thinking skills and boost mental performance and works with organisations internationally to help make brain fitness a key driver for business success. Her work is based on cutting-edge academic research learnings and business recommendations, and provides essential, practical and easily-implementable tools for building sustainable, healthy business cultures in a vastly-changing working landscape:

Corporate Health & Wellbeing Summit 2017

Welcome to 'The Essentials in Cultivating a Sustainable Workplace Wellbeing Culture'

Led by: Dr Aaron Jarden

This full-day masterclass will be held on Wednesday 29 November 2017

When it comes to designing, implementing, and embedding Wellbeing Programs that work and thrive, Dr Aaron Jarden from the Wellbeing and Resilience Centre at SAHMRI, Adelaide, is one of the world experts. With his extensive practical knowledge and experience in the field of Wellbeing Science, backed up by cutting-edge theory and research, Aaron will take you through the absolute essentials of setting up a Wellbeing Program that is not only relevant and successful, but which stands the test of time to support a healthier, more positive, and engaged workforce.

Wellbeing is increasingly regarded as one of the keys to stress management, greater resilience, enhanced problem-solving and creative abilities. Research indicates that the links go from improved employee wellbeing to better engagement in the workplace to a more productive organisation. So how does one create a Wellbeing Program to facilitate capitalising on these links?

This masterclass is designed for anyone intrested or involved in the development, supply or management of Wellbeing in organisations; large, medium and small, and provides invaluable information for programs at any stage of development. Whether your program is already implemented, or is in the early-stages of design, you’ll come away armed with practical, innovative tools, ideas and solutions to helping set up and run your Wellbeing Program to its best potential. The workshop is also experiential within an applied training framework, so you will experience many of these empirically validated tools and approaches first hand during the workshop, to get a feel for a successful program first hand.

The overarching aim is to be able to use your Wellbeing Program to build a healthy and happy work environment, with resilient staff who can manage and reduce stress, frustration and anxiety, and capitalise on their strengths, capabilities and positive assets.
