The CSIRO has identified rising work stress as a mega risk to productivity for the next 20 years.

Major disruptions like COVID-19 have amplified this risk. Setbacks can happen any day, so having a sustainable and caring culture is critical.

  1. Identify someone who is struggling
  2. Ask R U OK? with empathy

  4. Help them prepare for a mental health consultation
  5. Keep them connected with their work colleagues

  7. Scalable training solutions to show how to support a teammate in distress.

This webinar will include a Q&A. Don’t miss out, secure your seat today!




Meet Graeme Cowan

Graeme loves being a professional speaker because sharing ideas can lead to conversations, and conversations can lead to action and change. His proudest career achievement was helping to start and grow R U OK? This is an idea that has led to a big change.

Audiences around the world frequently describe his style as authentic, relevant, compelling, and thought-provoking.

In his earlier career, he worked in senior leadership positions with Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and AT Kearney.

In 2000 he went through a 5-year episode of depression that his psychiatrist described as the worst he had ever treated.

He emerged from this crisis with a different view about how we can increase our resilience, mood, and performance. He is described by the Australian Financial Review as a “resilience expert”.

He is the author of 5 books, including the internationally acclaimed BACK FROM THE BRINK, which has a testimonial from the former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, and which has become a best seller in China.

Graeme lives beside Sydney’s Lane Cove National Park with his wife Karen, and enjoys bushwalking anywhere nature shines. He loves spending time with family and friends and eating great food.
