The Time for Mental Health Training Is Now—Janice Cardinale, founder, Cardinale Creative & Event Minds Matter

Hello My Name is Human. What does that mean in 2024? It is at the core of who we are and what it will take to prioritize human sustainability in our industry to become the first most mentally fit. The founder of Event Minds Matter, where the content is specifically created by like-minded event profs who volunteer their time to discuss the solutions to the stress, anxiety and burn out that the industry has been facing for decades, is on a mission to bring education and resources to an industry that labels itself the 6th most stressful job.  But why do the first 5 have mandated mental health training and our industry lags behind?  

Do you agree that mental health training should be mandated for the next generation looking to build a career in the industry?  Do you think other members of the industry would benefit as well?  Bring your thoughts, ideas and questions because this session will be interactive, safe and a place to share your thoughts.

A Holistic & Inclusive Approach to Healthier Meetings—Dave Stevens, Corporate Advisor, Olympian Meeting

A piecemeal approach to wellness is no longer enough. Just adding yoga at 6:00 a.m. to start the day does not take the bigger picture into account, if it takes away from attendees’ sleep and excludes those who might be intimidated (or just don’t like yoga). Dave Stevens, the host of Return on Wellness, will share his holistic approach to event experiences.
