We are so thrilled with last Thursday's event at Maurocco Bar for our BMA Social Night.
Feedback from one of our guests sums it up..."What a fabulous gathering of our local business people. There was a really good buzz in the room so I hope lots of people made new and useful connections."
Thank you to Lucy Mayes for a thought-provoking presentation about creating wellbeing. To Alex Perry & Loudon Cooper from Bar Midland for the catering and speaking about their business, one year in.
And to Craig Gaston for capturing the night in these photos.

How did it go?
Gen Ward, BMA Secretary recently talked about Workplace Wellbeing mainFM radio show – Mind Ya Head.
As part of the ‘Certificate in Creating Wellbeing’ Gen is studying (funded by the Mental Wellbeing of Business Communities Grant Program through Business Victoria), Gen's been meeting regularly with other business associations across Victoria to not only learn about this topic, but hear about how other businesses are fairing and the wellbeing projects rolled out. One group put on a lunch that had laughing yoga as an activity. We watched a video and it looked like a lot of fun.
We'd like to keep this conversation going...What's working well for you in managing wellbeing at work?

A wonderful lunch with Maldon businesses yesterday at The Kangaroo Hotel. Jacqueline shared updates on Business Mount Alexander and Gen led a discussion around what's working well for us in terms of workplace wellbeing. Where you may be struggling. What you've tried and what lessons you've learnt.
People shared how they support their staff with their wellbeing, plus some of the struggles with shortages of staff and volunteers. People spoke about building a culture where employees are valued, leading to engaged and supported teams, improving staff attrition and being seen as an employer of choice.
Thanks to the amazing team at The Kangaroo, who also expressed their gratitude for hearing us talk about this important topic!
We are running our big event next Thursday 18 August at Maurocco Bar / Midland Hotel from 5.30pm for a social networking night. This will also have a focus on workplace wellbeing with guest speaker Lucy Mayes.
