31 May, 6-8PM
Venue: Direction First / InSites Consulting AU
241 Castlereagh St., Sydney NSW 2000
Join us for an evening of networking, nibbles, and discussions on the topics of industry trends, culture, and career in MRX!
· Jumping Over Hurdles – Becoming a leader in a workforce of unconscious bias.
· Nine to Thrive- Have you ever wondered – is there any other way to work that 9-5? Flexible working is challenging the traditional way of working by turning work on its head to include the needs of both the employee and the employer. Come along to find out more about what is flexible work, how can it help you thrive but still be able to grow your career.
Jumping Over Hurdles
Lisa is an enthusiastic and proactive leader with over 13 years of brand strategy and consumer insights experience based in Sydney and New York City across a range of industries (FMCG, Retail, Telecom, Travel and Pharmaceuticals) and countries (primarily Asia Pacific, Americas and Europe). She’s naturally intellectually curious with a focus on ROI and driving actionable insight and a keen advocate for adopting new technologies, analytical tools and methodologies (particularly if they are a little ‘out of the box’). Whether it’s in the US or in APAC, Lisa is passionate about cultivating a high performance culture and making sure we have fun doing it. Lisa has been working at Qualtrics for two years; prior, Lisa worked in New York as a Research Director (VP) at Hall and Partners for 3 years after moving from Millward Brown in NY. She started her career at Millward Brown in Sydney.

Best Life Design
Tuesday, October 17th 2017, 6pm – 8.30pm, The Shelbourne Hotel (Top Level)
Do you fundamentally believe that you shouldn’t feel as though you have to choose between your career and your family? That it should be possible to build a more purposeful life plan that enables you to achieve success in both aspects of life? If that’s the case, that belief is all you need to get started. A natural curiosity to explore your life choices and an openness to apply some thinking to how you show up in life – based on the experiences of others in the same shoes – are the keys to developing your own Best Life Design. Join us for a workshop led by author, Gill McLaren, who will talk about her own corporate leadership journey. She will share how she embarked on a mission to take strategic and business planning approaches and apply them to the most important plan you will ever write: your own Life Plan. Thank you to Resources Group, SSI and QRA for sponsoring this event!
Statistically Significant – Running Life Your Way
Tuesday, May 9th 2017, 6pm – 8.30pm, Lightspeed
We’ve never been busier and quite often we find ourselves on the ‘hamster wheel of life’, yet we want to be calm, relaxed, resilient, vital, confident and, most of all, happy. Following suit with last year’s event on becoming a ‘Chief Life Officer’, this year we will learn self-awareness and supportive actions for a sense of ease and well-being. Join us for a workshop led by mindfulness facilitator, Clarissa Hughes, on topics including:
Knowing your drainers and sustainers – how to avoid exhaustion and being overwhelmed
Learning to pace – breaking the cycle of doing too much and crashing as a consequence
Staying flexible – learning about our tendencies to either resist or feel overwhelmed by things we don’t like
The power of the breath – how we can use breath consciously to de-stress
A Leap of Faith – Be a Chief Life Officer
November 16, 2016 – 6:00pm to 8:00pm, Facebook
