IMPACTOLOGY LIVE SCHEDULE

Time: 8 AM—9 AM Melbourne Time | 18-Nov 4pm NY

Speaker: Nick Bracks, Mental Health Advocate & Actor

Impact Topic: Managing Our Mental Health in Uncertain Times

What Impact Means to Me: “Doing things daily to improve the lives of others. It is the small daily things that might help those around us. We can all make an impact.”

______

 

Time: 9 AM—10 AM (Melbourne Time) 

Speakers: Janine Robertson & Paul Gordon, Co Authors, ‘Spenditude: A life-changing attitude to money’

Impact Topic: In 2020, don’t waste a good crisis.  Get in touch with your Spenditude to shape and impact your life.

What Impact Means to us: “‘Door slam’ moments often arrive when least expected. Those life events that startle us and feel like the pathway we were travelling has been cut off. Door slams often have enough impact to motivate change. They can also floor us – emotionally and financially.  It’s not easy to prepare for these moments – like redundancy, divorce or a health issue – life events have a way of sneaking up.  So when impact strikes and a door slams, being on top of your financial wellbeing counts. In 2020 the human race all had a door slamming moment. A scary virus with scary media.  The biggest impact on most of us is uncertainty.  The biggest concern is money and health.”

What Impact Means to Me: “When you encounter something or someone that diverts you off the course you were on. However big or small the diversion, you are changed. We all have the ability to have an impact and the power of this is profound. Whether we choose to use that ability and how we use it is the true test.”

______

Time: 12 PM—1 PM

Speaker: Justin Robinson, Writer, Director, Filmmaker

Speaker: Harpreet Ghumman, Learning & Organization Development Leader, D & I Strategist, Executive coach

Impact Topic: Women Leaders Matter

What Impact Means to Me: “Free flowing waves touching each other, causing numerous reflections to build up – leaving one in a better space than before at mind, body and soul level that triggers an action that can or cannot be measured. And paving the way for others to soak in the waves & reflect.”

Time: 8 AM—8.30AM

Speaker: Kirsten Forgione, Director & Psychologist

Impact Topic: MYNDLY: Why understanding the mind is critical for work, and life.

What Impact Means To Me:
The definition of impact, as stated in the English dictionary, is “coming into forcible contact with an object”, and “having marked effect or influence”. And whilst this definition, in my view, captures the essence of impact – that is, to effect or influence – I believe it overlooks two important ideas, that capture what impact means to me. Specifically, that; a small gesture can also have marked effect or influence. And that having an impact on someone, means effecting or influencing them to think, feel or do something differently (or in a way they had not thought of before).

What Impact Mean To Me:
“One person can make a mark, but it takes a tribe to create real impact. The best way to create massive positive change in the world is to create places and spaces where other people thrive. Engagement is the ultimate impact multiplier.”

______

Time: 12 PM—1 PM

Speaker: Duy Huynh, Writer/Director & Marie McLeod, Positive Psychology Therapist

Impact Topic: “Can we learn ‘How To Thrive’ despite struggle?”

What Impact Mean To Me (Duy Huynh): “As a refugee, my earliest memories of life was upheaval, violence and trauma at sea. As a I watch those I care about struggle, I’ve always been optimistic that there is a way through the darkness, to learn about what makes us resilient and to find the secret formula to happiness.”

What Impact Means To Me (Marie McLeod): “Impact is my ‘Ikigai’, my reason for being. It gets me up each day with a spring in my step, making my life whole. To impact those who struggle, is a gift – the more I give, the more I get. I’m pact full, when I’m impactful.”

Speaker: Jeremy Andrulis, CEO, Third Idea
