From Struggling to Supported – with Matt Caruana
Thursday, 30 March 2023 – 11am ADST
From wanting to end his life, becoming paraplegic, to now wanting to live to his utmost potential, Matt Caruana explores the lessons that his lived experience brought him so we can find a supportive network, be able to support ourselves and also, be equipped to “see the signs” and support those we work alongside.
The Australian Journal of General Practice conducted a study that found more than 70% of healthcare workers reported psychological distress due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With heightened fear and increased stress levels, more than ever, healthcare workers have experienced exhaustive pressures commonly leading to “burnout”.
By having awareness and effective strategies around supporting mental wellbeing, we battle the stigma, build individual resilience and boost everyone’s output. As a result, we effectively increase connection and invite collaboration as we become stronger together.

Doing more with less – Growing busy doesn’t always mean adding more people. How can we achieve more with less in our business? (Provided by Your Business Momentum in conjunction with ATSA)
We all know the feeling of being too busy. Our to-do lists are never-ending, and it seems like we’re constantly playing catch-up. But what if we told you that you can actually achieve more by doing less? In the third of our webinar series, we’ll share strategies to help you find ways to be leaner and more efficient in your business.
The Fatigue Antidote – Practical strategies for self when there is no fuel in the tank
Presented by Bri Hayllar Tuesday 2nd May 2023 – 11am AEST
A recent study showed that 75% of working professionals are experiencing burnout and exhaustion.
You don’t need to be an organisational psychologist to understand why. Increased workloads, staff shortages, back-to-back meetings without breaks, and little separation between life and work have all contributed to a rise in burnout. And that’s not even mentioning the P-word, the rising cost of living, or global conflict and instability.
In this one-hour interactive workshop/webinar, we will explore the dramatic increase in exhaustion in the global workforce in recent years. As we seek a delineated ‘fresh start moment’ to give us a renewed sense of motivation and re-energise us to pursue our goals, we soon realise that this moment may not be coming. Instead, we must create our own ‘fresh start moments’ as we move into the ongoing global uncertainty and continue to protect and promote our mental health and wellbeing.
This workshop will focus on recognising the signs and symptoms of workforce exhaustion and understanding its causes. It will provide practical strategies and take-away resources that you can use to combat fatigue and help your team create their own ‘fresh start’ moments. Participants will have an opportunity to:
•Understand workforce exhaustion and its prevalence
•Ability to recognise the signs of exhaustion (in self and others)
•Unpack the common causes of workforce exhaustion and how the pandemic and other factors have exacerbated these issues
•Learn strategies to combat fatigue, including; co-creating the future, creating clear boundaries, self-care and rest, weaving wellbeing into work, and focusing on social connections.
•Build a range of practical strategies to re-energise and create lasting and meaningful change rather than temporary relief from exhaustion.
•Awareness of support available in addressing exhaustion and proactively supporting wellbeing.
