Foundation Member Profile: Meet Leanne (or should we say Indiana Jones!)

Julia Keady,
05 November 2018

I first met Leanne Hart at a workshop in the first part of 2018. Listening to her across the table talk about her connection to social purpose and to change-makers warmed my heart. I instantly felt these words emerge in my head – 'heartsmart women and men – and that's the collective I wanted to build. Here's a few questions I posed to Leanne recently so you can get to know her.


Perspective: Do we have to be sexy to win a corporate partner?

Let’s be honest, a pug isn’t the best-looking dog. It’s got a face that looks like it’s been hit with a brick, it wheezes like an asthmatic in a pollen storm and it won’t be qualifying for agility trials anytime soon. But clearly there are thousands of owners who see beyond its limitations and can’t wait to add a pug to the family home.

Community Wellbeing: The Other F Word – Forgiveness

Adam Blanch,
12 September 2018

Dear Adam, I read your article on trauma and it made sense. I’ve realised that I was far more resourceful and resilient than I thought, and this has helped me move past a lot of pain and symptoms. However, I can’t get past wanting to make the person who abused me pay for it.

“You never get a second chance to make a first impression” — Will Rogers  

Picture this:  It's the first day on the job for your new team member.  There are a myriad of feelings and thoughts going through their mind.  They are excited about their new role, new team and new opportunities.  They are curious, ready to learn and connect …. and probably a little nervous about the unknown.   


Community Wellbeing: The Majesty of our Feelings

Psychologist Adam Blanch has touched on the majesty of our emotions in other articles, and promised a fuller exploration of them to come, so here it is. Let’s talk about the F word - feelings.
