Kathie Melocco -Keynote Speaker

Hear how Kathie cheated death, took control and showed pure courage while standing up to systemic abuse and ... then the excesses, greed and self interest was exposed.

Kathie’s stories of leadership, resilience and having the courage to see change as an opportunity to reform tired old systems that don’t work is transformative. Audiences are captured from the first moment with enthralling footage of what systemic abuse looks like, and are then taken on journey that provides the opportunity to re-think perspective for a renewed sense of purpose. What matters to you? What matters to your business?

We need to shift our expectations of leadership to encompass a culture of empathy and care: Start2Care starts that conversation. Sadly, a lot of this is common sense but we have systemised and demonised those who speak up for fear of exposing our own frailties.

We have to eradicate these cultures of victim-blaming and denial and dismissal, because there are so many structures in our society, both in terms of social attitudes and institutions, that enable predatory behaviours that injures people. Workplace bullying, harassment, gender abuse, domestic violence are not ok and it is everyone's responsibility to call this out and end the suffering.

There is no health without Mental Health

Mental Health affects us all but few take the time to understand the impact on health of systems and processes that harm not help.

Dr Brock Chisholm, the first Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), was a psychiatrist and shepherded the notion that mental and physical health were intimately linked. He famously stated that “without mental health there can be no true physical health.”

More than 70 years later, we have strong evidence elucidating the bidirectional relationship between mental illnesses – specifically depression and anxiety – and physical health outcomes. However, policy continues to lag behind the evidence in this regard.
