A conversation around looking after your physical and mental wellbeing while you navigate through your working career.
Presenter: Mike McGowan – Senior Project Officer AOD, North Coast Primary Health Network
Mike spent 38 years in the ABC doing everything from floor sweeping to senior managing. He was State Director in QLD when the ABC buildings at Toowong in Brisbane were evacuated due to a breast cancer cluster. Mike spent the next seven years helping relocate nearly 500 staff into 12 temporary buildings, while he coordinated the project to design and construct a new safe, purpose-built broadcasting centre on the banks of the Brisbane River. The building was successfully opened in 2012. Mike learned many hard lessons about how to, and how not to manage yourself during times of great professional and personal stress. Mike shares his experiences in the hope that what he learned might be of help to others.
