Mental health webinar to run next week
The Real Media Collective is running a bonus Power of Print webinar session for members and industry, to provide support for mental wellness across Australia and New Zealand.
Well-known industry expert across mental health and wellbeing, Steven Gamble, founder of Man Anchor, will kick off the session on 8 September, providing key tools for the audience to apply to their daily lives as we all navigate lockdown.
Adding to the session will be a wider discussion with industry leaders Ruth Cobb, PrintNZ, Andrew Ward, Konica Minolta, Rodney Frost, The Lamson Group and Kellie Northwood, The Real Media Collective, who will share their stories across mental wellness throughout 2020, 2021, and beyond.
Ruth Cobb, chief executive officer, PrintNZ, said, “The second lockdown across New Zealand has created more challenges for the industry as genuine fatigue sets in. This session is timely and one I’m proud to be part of for our PrintNZ members and the broader industry,”
Steven Gamble is a well-known mental health advocate, and a regular contributor to Print21, bringing focus across the importance of mental health for all. One of his key mantra’s is ‘health is health’, which calls for the same priority to be placed on mental as we do on our physical health.
Sue Threlfo, general manager, Konica Minolta, which is sponsoring the webinar, said, “Konica Minolta have been thrilled to support the Power of Print initiative, and this added session was a no-brainer. Our industry really needs to come together and take learnings from this important session. We welcome a really positive discussion to support us all enrich our mental wellness at these difficult times.”
“This is an important topic for all of us, from business owners to employees alike. Ongoing lockdowns, restrictions and uncertainty creates challenges for everyone and I am really pleased to be part of this webinar. Not only to be able to share some applicable steps to assist us all during these times, but also to hear the panellists who have agreed, with great courage, to share their stories.
"The open Q&A session will also provide opportunity for the entire audience to engage. I want ‘an all of industry’ discussion across two countries to provide our industry real support and encourage everyone to offer the time for their employees to log-in and attend,” concluded Kellie Northwood, chief executive officer, The Real Media Collective.
The webinar will be held Wednesday 8 September, 12:30pm AESTD / 2:30pm NZT. TRMC members and non-members are welcome to attend.
