The Banyans’ Leadership Breakfast is an opportunity to bring together small groups of highly respected leaders from various fields to discuss what it means to be a leader and the importance of ensuring mental wellness in our workplaces, staff, and in ourselves.
The Banyans’ Leadership Breakfast is held each quarter and comprises different leaders at each event. It is a wonderful networking event and presents an exclusive opportunity to visit The Banyans Residence to see first-hand what our programs involve.
Our inaugural breakfast was held on Saturday, February 6 at The Banyans Residence. Attendees included Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Neuroscience and Neuroplasticity Professor Selena Bartlett, Brisbane Roar goalkeeper Jamie Young, Somerville House Director of Philanthropy Petrina Gilmore, Springfield City Group Managing Director Raynuha Sinnathamby, Fluid Approval Chief Executive Officer Grant Johnsen, and Postdoctoral Researcher at QUT’s Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies, Dr Ruth Knight.
While enjoying a delicious breakfast prepared by The Banyans chefs, these leaders were able to share their thoughts about the contribution of mental wellness to their organisations’ productivity and outcomes, while also discussing the challenges posed by 2021.
