THE THRIVING WORKPLACE

Thursday 23rd Feb 2023 – Q Station, Manly, NSW

A very special invitation to Senior People Leaders… 

“What a rollercoaster ride it’s been these past few years!  Amazing people leaders like you have been putting so much energy into taking care of everyone else. It’s relentless. But who is looking after YOU?

Please join us to replenish and rejuvenate YOUR inspiration and energy with an intimate group of carefully selected changemakers.”

Sophie and Claire – Founders, The Thriving Workplace 

We’ll deep-dive into the issues that matter most to you and your workplace right now through a series of interactive Think Tanks.

Each Think Tank is carefully curated around the concept of action learning – incorporating opportunity for reflection, sharing experiences, and co-creation.

 

Think Tanks Topics will include:

Managing Psychosocial Hazards in the Workplace

Empowering Leaders to Drive Positive Change

Creating Adaptive and Sustainable Organisations

Equipping Leaders to Upskill  for the Hybrid World

Reimagining the Office: The Power of Purposeful Design

Leveraging Cognitive Diversity as a Strategic Advantage

This is no ordinary ‘conference’. It’s more than an ‘un-conference’…

You’ll be by the beach, in one of Sydney’s most beautiful National Parks. Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in a rejuvenating environment of nature and fresh air.

The journey incorporates meditation, nature walks, ice baths, (all optional!) nutritious food and more…. Plus, a glorious celebration of all we’ve achieved.

And you’ll be in good company! Every single senior business leader joining the day has been hand-selected for their commitment and passion in building a better world of work. A world where PEOPLE can truly thrive in their workplaces, and as a consequence, business will thrive too.

We would love for you to join us for this special celebration of YOU.
