New conference to shake up Aussie workplaces

The one-day event will cover motivation, performance and workplace culture.

Conscious Work, a new one-day conference, will make its debut in Sydney this year with a goal to empower a new generation of business leaders and tackle unhealthy workplace issues.

Taking place on 27 March 2020 in Barangaroo, Conscious Work will educate delegates on the latest research around motivation, performance, behaviour change and workplace culture and demonstrate how to implement this into the workplace.

The event forms part of The Conscious Space, a three-day market-style event for the public.

Jess Mcleod, founder of Conscious Work and the Conscious Space, said research shows an unhealthy workplace can impact the long-term mental wellness of a community.

“We believe work can be better,” she said.

“By attending Conscious Work, business leaders/owners and employees will discover the mindsets and knowledge we need to work smarter and perform at our best, and the wisdom and cultural shifts required to reflect more and feel better.

“Oh, and there will be a happy hour post-event, thanks to Stone and Wood and some ace non-alcoholic brands too, to really drive home the message of work and play.”

The organisers have partnered with Thrive Global, a wellbeing technology company founded by Arianna Huffington, to curate the speaker line-up, which includes:

  • Cassandra Goodman – Thrive Global
  • John Elliott – Collins SBA
  • Michael Ellis – Pragmatic Thinking
  • Cal Newport – Author of six books including Deep Work and Digital Minimalism (appearing via video link)
  • Kylie Lewis – Of Kin
  • Dominic Price – Atlassian/Not business as usual

Conscious Work will discuss the topics of stress, burnout, exhaustion and disengagement and how these factors can erode productivity and wellbeing in the workplace.
