Business owners in the Byron Shire are invited to attend a free online workshop aimed at providing resources and tools to improve their, and their employees’, mental health and wellbeing, as well as the opportunity to connect with other business owners.
The online workshop will be held on Thursday 7 October from 1:30pm – 3pm.
Lisa Richards, Council’s Business Enterprise Officer, said the aim of the workshop was to provide business owners with strategies and tools to cope with the stress of owning or running a small business and how to create team wellbeing.
“Council ran similar workshops last October and also in June this year and we had terrific feedback from those who attended,” Ms Richards said.
“This online workshop is a more condensed version covering some key areas of the previous workshops,” she said.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has put an enormous amount of pressure on businesses in the Shire in a range of different ways including the need for some to diversify and change the way they operate and find staff to help them keep the doors open.
“This workshop, which is being facilitated by Mullumbimby Psychology, will look at things including skills to help manage burnout and how to take care of mental health,” Ms Richards said.
The workshop will run from 1:30 – 3pm and will be via Zoom.
Business owners can register via Council’s website.
