I know we have been sending a few emails lately, but we are in a pretty tough spot as an industry. In and out of lockdown, cancellations all over the place, and no real ‘safety net’ support as was on offer last year.
Quick one from me…help me build a case for better govt support and a bit on mental health.
Help us help you – 2-minute survey
We are working hard to advocate for greater support. I’m doing lots of media, and lobbying those who can make a difference. What will help now us is info: qualitative and quantitative. I’ve whipped up a quick survey that will take two minutes to fill in but arm us with what we need to build a case for support. Please have a look and fill it in here.
We had our mini online conference on Monday and it was great! Thanks to all of you who came along, I’ll post a recording soon. One of the most popular presentations was about mental health, by Dannii Hole.
“Our mental health and wellbeing include our emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing. It impacts the way we think, feel and act. Practicing care for our mental health is vital to the way we handle stress, make choices, and interact with others. This presentation will cover pandemic fatigue and anticipator anxiety, why mental health is relevant in the workplace and how it relates to small business, the unique challenges small businesses face, how to identify if someone is struggling and how to have a conversation about mental health, and the importance of self-care. The presentation also gives you some tips and strategies to support your wellbeing during COVID and beyond.”

The recorded presentation will also be uploaded to the VTIC Industry Support Hub website under the Mental Health and Wellbeing Tile – Workshops page here is the link to this resource page (and note more workshops will be uploaded in the coming weeks):
