Tania recently presented a keynote as part of The European Business Forum, which is the premier event for business leaders in Europe. It brought together the continent’s top business people with the world’s leading management gurus in “the Davos of business thinking”.
The forum was hosted by Thinkers50, the world’s leading network of business thinkers, and located in Odense, Denmark. Tania spoke alongside Roger Martin, Johanna Mair, Jimmy Maymann-Holler, Don Tapscott, Casper von Koskull and many more.
“It was a fantastic experience to hear Tania’s speech at Thinkers 50 in Odense in 2018. Tania really made it crystal clear to all of us what “purpose” means and how important it is if you want to make a difference. Very impressive.”
“Tania brings her own special magic to an event. She combines valuable insights with a fantastic singing voice – a truly unique experience. She electrified the 2018 European Business Forum.” Thinkers 50
We need an urgent taskforce to tackle the mental health pandemic sparked by Covid-19
Mental health charity Mind Medicine Australia (MMA) calls for and strongly supports all recommendations to form a Mental Health Innovation Taskforce to be immediately established. This must be established now to guide the government in planning the next steps to manage the increasing mental health pandemic triggered by Covid-19 and the recent bushfires tragedy.
We live in one of the wealthiest countries and we have one of the best medical systems in the World. Yet despite the high calibre of our medical practitioners, and the enormous associated system costs, we also have one of the highest rates of mental illness in the World. These rates are increasing exponentially now.
Experts warn that a long-term mental health pandemic is looming in Australia that will potentially surpass the physical health impacts of the coronavirus. Frontline charities are suggesting that the effects of the current pandemic on mental illness could be “seven times” worse than the spike in mental illness caused by the recent bushfires.
Positive Human Collisions
I work with many wonderful teams and organisations and am always amazed at how many leaders say, “But I am not creative.”
And recently, some futurists said that creativity has become the most endangered species of the 21st century. We have a broadband culture but not the creative, original thought to fill it.
A global study of 1,500 CEOs by IBM showed that in an increasingly complex and uncertain global environment the most important leadership attribute is creativity. We need to be ready to pivot in a rapidly changing world to manage increasing social and economic challenges.
