TITLE:             WHY EVERY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS NEEDS EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT  PEOPLE.

SPEAKER:      Natalie Turvey, Director and Principal Psychologist, B.A. Psych. Grad Dip    Psych. MAPS. STAP. From Drop Of Life

Ever wondered why some people can communicate with others effectively, provide balanced feedback, lead others through ambiguity, use humour to build rapport, read and respond to the leadership needs of others and remain optimistic even in the face of difficulty?

Natalie will discuss the importance of both IQ and EQ (Emotional Intelligence) in Business. She will provide you with practical examples and new skills as you learn about the unique leadership traps that can trip up even the most successful leaders and the ways to avoid them.

Natalie explains why EQ is particularly hard to maintain at management levels of the company and shares the most common ego traps and how to avoid them to increase leadership effectiveness.

To find out if EQ is missing from your team, take this short quiz:

  • Is there often a breakdown in team communication?
  • Do you observe symptoms of low-stress tolerance?
  • Do one or more of your team members struggle with or resist change large or small?
  • Are you needed to mediate conflict on a regular basis?
  • Has pessimism taken over the work environment?
  • Do team members say or do the wrong things at the wrong time?

If you answered yes to more than two of these questions, it is worth your time to explore Emotional Intelligence.

We look forward to you joining us for this amazing lunch.

BWi February Lunch Invitation

DATE:             Friday, 9th February 2018

VENUE:           Palmer Colonial Golf Club, 57 Paradise Springs Ave, Robina QLD 4226

TIME:              12.00pm – 2.30pm

COST:             $60 for members, $80 for non members

Each and every day we place a chemical burden on our bodies through what we eat and also what we put on our skin (personal and skincare products)

There are eight major classes of chemicals in everyday products from hormone disrupting chemicals to obesogens, neuro toxins, immuno toxins, developmental an reproductive toxins and cancer causing chemicals (carcinogens).

The FDA in America state "almost one in five cosmetic (cosmetic's defined as skin, hair, beauty, personal, baby, men's care and makeup products) contain formaldehyde-releasing chemicals known to cause cancer" yet many of the chemicals that are banned in Europe as highly toxic are found in the products most of us use on a daily basis here in Australia. Obesogenic chemicals cause our fat cells to multiply, turn our normal cells into fat cells and cause us to put on and maintain weight. The hormone disrupting chemicals (endocrine disrupting) found in almost all "cosmetic" products are xeno oestrogen's that mimic the female hormone oestrogen sending our hormones into disarray and are sadly feminizing our men and baby boys so much so that the rate of malformed genitalia in baby boys has increased by 400% (a greater increase than that of cancer).

Babies are being born pre-polluted with on average 287 chemicals in their little umbilical cords, one in seven women of child baring age are considered infertile, semen count in men has now dropped by more than 60% and that is just the beginning!

Join Therese as she walks you through the minefield of cosmetic chemicals and provides you with solutions. She will leave you empowered and inspired to learn more and to fully appreciate how you can totally change the way you age, impact your hormones positively and live a healthier life.

Therese's Bio

After having had endometriosis, hashimoto's and tumours in her spleen, Therese had no option but to choose health. For almost 16 years Therese has dedicated her life to study and research.

She now works with Professors and wellness practitioners sharing evidenced-based research on chemical toxicity and its impact on the human body.
It is not acceptable to Therese that babies are being born with on average 287 synthetic chemical toxicants in their little umbilical cords.

It will take women to bring about the change needed in the Cosmetic industry and as Organic Industry Leader as as voted one of Australia's Top 50 Most Influential Women,

Therese is determined to educate, empower and inspire women to bring about that change.

Epigenetic science is all about how the genes we inherit come with an on switch, off switch and volume control. Dr Karen explores how choices we make in life can either support wellness genes or sabotage our ability to dodge those genetic bullets loaded into our cells from our parents.

SPEAKER:          Margaret Miller

"I'm drowning in clutter and don't know where to begin!"

Whether it's due to poor habits, a packrat mentality, or an advanced case of affluenza, too many people struggle under the burden of clutter at work and at home. Clutter can clog the smooth workings of your home or business when time is lost searching for missing things instead of getting things done. Often belongings lost to clutter are replaced, with the original surfacing as soon as the replacement is bought.

Margaret Miller, a Partner at Bell Legal Group, has spent years finding the best system to de-clutter your life so you can get on with the important things. Learn how to simplify, organise and store like a genius.

Learn the simple steps to make your office more efficient and to make your workplace and home a place of serenity and inspiration instead of a constant struggle against disorder.

This presentation will teach you the tricks to take away your stress and may even change your life.

One lucky forum attendee will receive as a gift the one thing a Champion De-clutterer can't live without, courtesy of Bell Legal Group. It has been described as "the best present I have ever received!"

We look forward to seeing you.
