MEC Masterclass: Resilience and Wellbeing in Business
Melburnians have spent nearly 18 months living under pandemic restrictions and more than 200 days in lockdown. We’re old hats at living in lockdown, but with each one our patience wears thinner and it gets harder to bring our best selves to work.
Join us for this Masterclass brought to you by the Melbourne Entrepreneurial Centre as we explore what resilience and wellbeing looks like in the current climate, how to implement strategies to improve resilience and wellbeing in your personal life, and how being an effective leader of yourself can have an impact at work.
Our expert panel includes:
- Dr Nicholas Van Dam, Inaugural Director, Contemplative Studies Centre, at the University of Melbourne
- Valerie Judge, Founder and Managing Director, Rose Phoenix (Wade Institute alum and Master of Entrepreneurship graduate)
We’ll chat through:
- What does resilience look like in business, particularly as a founder?
- How can you build resilience?
- What is mindfulness and how can it help?
- What other practices are proven help us through challenging times at work and at home?
We look forward to seeing you there.
