MFAA: SOLD Roadshow

The next MFAA: SOLD roadshow is being held in March 2017.

This roadshow will be covering the ‘lifestyle wellbeing and mental health’ and ‘social responsibility’ pillars of the MFAA:SOLD program.

Mindful practices to unleash productivity and build resilience

This session has been developed to aid brokers in becoming more balanced and successful through productivity. At the event attendees will be provided with a step-by-step guide to guide you towards achieving mindful practices; to help you and your business become happier and healthier.

Our specialist speakers will challenge you to think differently and become more effective:

  • Learn how to lower your stress and anxiety levels and become more resilient.
  • Simple tips you can use every day to unleash creativity and improve productivity.
  • Recognise unhelpful thought behaviours and thought patterns, and how to turn them around.
  • Cultivate a practice of gratitude.
  • Become more present in your life; and how that benefits you, clients, staff, friends and family.

With more and more businesses embracing mindfulness, this is a unique opportunity to implement a fresh outlook and some positive habits.
