High impact programs tailored for your organisation

Mentally Healthy Workplaces

Raising mental health awareness is the first step. But too many organisations stop there. The next steps are the critical ones. Leaders set the standard. They are role models. Their responsibility is to create a workplace that demonstrably values and prioritises employees’ mental health and wellbeing. To do that, they need confidence and competence to recognise signs early, have constructive, collaborative mental health conversations, and provide effective support systems and structures, crucial to a psychologically safe culture. Anne can guide you on this journey.

Mindfield Navigation for Leaders

Leadership, mental health and emotional intelligence are inextricably connected. But it is a Mindfield to navigate that mental space. Thoughts and emotions act like booby-traps sabotaging us from achieving what we want, and being who we want to be, both at home and at work.

Let Anne map the emotionally smart and savvy way to manage our Mindfield rather than it manage us. She will equip your leaders to lead, support and encourage others in disrupting, uncertain and for many, frightening times.

“You were amazing. Great job in getting a room full of men talking about mental health”
Audience member (a man!)
RMS Safety, NSW
“Our audience of leaders is a very diverse group. Some want to be convinced by hearing the theory, others by how well it connects to their lived experience and some just want to be entertained. Anne’s obvious expertise in her area and experience of life as well as her irrepressible energy as a presenter resulted in her achieving that rare goal of delivering value to all in the room – there was a real buzz.”

Ruma Karaitiana - Chief Executive

“Once an organisation engages you, you manage to ‘cut to the chase’ very quickly. You have an uncanny ability to engage with people (whether they want to or not!). What I am saying is, in addition to your many and varied professional qualifications, and your understanding of organisations, you really understand people and what makes them tick. You quickly win the trust of others. People feel very safe when they put themselves in your hands.”.
Virginia Briggs - Chief Executive Officer
“Anne brought a hugely impactful authentic and accessible style of presentation and conversation to the eBay Australia... Anne's unique style of connecting with participants in a caring and personable way through sharing her own experiences and knowledge on mental ill health was so wonderful. We have received so many fantastic reviews from staff who said the session deeply resonated with them and has helped them know how to start those challenging but important conversations. “
