Media Release - The Wake Up Call

24th May 2021

Council and Wilmar held a Workplace Health and Safety Event on Tuesday 18 May 2021 for their employees with 500 attendees. 

The presentation by Paul Spinks, a Queensland Ambulance Parademic, took wellbeing to a new level with courageous disclosures from his experiences on the frontline and reminded employees to refocus, reframe and rethink their outlook on physical and mental wellbeing and realign values.   

Paul is a presenter who sees mental health as the number one epidemic in this country that is holding us back. Paul raises awareness through Australian workplaces as he believes employers have a key role to play in working with staff to help them through difficult times in their lives. 

The Wake-Up Call presentation was raw, real and shifted the way that people think.
