9.00 - 10.00 am
                   Lisa McInnes-Smith, Acclaimed Keynote Speaker, Master of Audience Participation
                   This session focuses on personal performance and on-going improvement. Performance rises when people capitalise on their strengths
                   and minimise the effect of their weaknesses. Lisa sets people on a strategic pathway of continuous progress. She identifies what energises,
                   engages, inspires and motivates, as well as those aspects that self-sabotage. Lisa is a performance catalyst. She steps in as the coach to
                   unlock potential and empower people to perform above their own expectations. She nurtures the seeds of self-belief and self-confidence.
                   This dynamic presentation will help people renew their attitude and skill-sets to achieve the goals they truly want.

10.00 - 11.00 am   Making a Shift - The Science of behaviour change within cultures
                   Darren Hill, Executive Director, Pragmatic Thinking
                   Ever tried to get a person to change their behaviour? Well, of course you have…We do it everyday.
                   But what about if you want to create a shift in a large group? What tools do we need to undertake broad-scale cultural change?
                   As it turns out there are certain patterns that if we engage these, we can achieve change; not just incremental change, but change that
                   is exponential, rapid and impactful.
                   Join Behavioural Scientist Darren Hill in this practical and entertaining look at how you can drive a new level of behaviour change in
                   your safety programs.

                     The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) is committed to ensuring that GC2018 will be delivered in a safe
                     manner that will protect all Workforce and Constituent Groups, and meet all applicable work health and safety (WHS) legislative

                   In her keynote address, Clare will examine the changing dynamics surrounding modern workplaces and the modern worker and how
                   WorkSafe is responding through its transformational strategy - WorkSafe 2030. Clare will reveal the key strategic pillars of WorkSafe's
                   long-term strategy and explain the pivotal role that prevention, partnerships and innovation will play in getting the best possible outcomes

9.50 - 10.40 am    Towards Australian Guidance on Work-related Psychological Health and Safety
                   Dr. Peta Miller, Safe Work Australia, Strategic WHS Advisor
                   The Guide describes a systematic approach to managing work-related psychological health and safety. It provides practical
                   advice to help organisations eliminate psychosocial hazards and minimise psychological risks. This Guide also provides
                   information about workers’ compensation and return to work including ‘intervening early’ and ‘supporting recovery’ following
                   work-related psychological injury. Most elements of this systematic approach are required under work health and safety
                   (WHS) or workers’ compensation laws in all Australian jurisdictions. The guide will provide clarity to organisations about what
                   they can and should do under both WHS and WC legislation. It can and should be used in conjunction with existing guidance
                   on bullying. This can then be complimented with optional workplace initiatives to support positive work-related mental health.
