Stress and anxiety are experienced by everybody at one time or another; but when not handled properly, depression can become evident. The dissimilarity between them is that stress is a response to an intimidating situation. Anxiety is a subsequent consequence to the stress, which leads to depression if not handled timely.
In any given situation, may it be good or bad, many may say that stress intervenes with their lives at least in a tolerable degree. Stress, if constantly recurring, may have direct repercussion to your health and may eventually cause headaches, high blood pressure, chest pain to heart palpitations, skin rashes, and loss of sleep. So, what are the best and most effective ways to handle these negativities?
We asked a group of professionals in this field to put together pieces of advice and methods in dealing with these emotional problems. This workshop will provide better understanding of what maybe you, your family or friend is undergoing and become a support system to help them cope with these emotions.
WeTeachMe is our vision of the future of learning: Inspired and impassioned learning that is run by the people, for the people.
In 2016, WeTeachMe officially became the biggest school in Australia, one giant leap towards our fundamental goal to be the biggest school in the world. As we start on our new journey to attain our next ambition, we begin with empowering thought leaders in every corner of the world by equipping them with the right tools and knowledge that will help them spark new ideas and bringing these ideas to life.
In accordance with this purpose, we have formed a new creative program to assist us in spreading our message into the world. We launched The Masters Series so that we could begin sharing the gifts, knowledge, and experience—of those who have achieved against all odds, the unimaginable in their life.
To achieve this aim, we invite the best and the brightest, the industry movers and shakers, the well-known and influential members of the world of entrepreneurs to share their learnings and experience in an unwavering effort to help those who are in constant search to find the answers. From creating thriving companies out of company to achieving gold medals in the Olympics, learn from the best of the best.
Beginning my career in the hospitality industry, I eventually fell into the dental industry working my way up to managing practices for almost 10 years. During this time I was fortunate to work alongside people who were passionate about their jobs, for me though, teeth just weren’t my passion!! However; being surrounded by people who love what they do on a daily basis inspired me to find my passion and purpose in life.
Yoga had been calling me for years but it wasn’t until 2008 that I came to the practise regularly in a search to regain strength and flexibility after I poorly managed a knee reconstruction. I became absorbed, practicing twice a week with my teacher and developing a daily home practise. I was initially unaware of the huge impact yoga was having on me holistically, combined with weekly Ayurveda treatments I began to notice subtle shifts in my energy, my behavior and my attitude towards life. I made more than a few life changes and began creating and living a life I wanted to live with integrity, trust and belief in myself.
My love for yoga was obvious and many had suggested I undergo my teacher training but I ignored the suggestion for some time. However in 2013 it became clear to me that yoga was my calling, so I decided to become a yoga teacher and undertake my teacher training, with the view to leave my job in dentistry and open my own yoga studio.
Then, in 2014 over a cheesy Valentines Day dinner with Chris (my partner in both life and business) Humming Puppy was conceived. Less than 12 months later we opened the doors to our first studio in Prahran, Melbourne on the 2nd February 2105, followed by the opening of our second studio in Redfern, Sydney in April 2016. Currently we are working on opening our third studio in New York at the end of 2017.
Our studio’s are an expression of our creativity and a desire to make yoga accessible and appealing to people who would never have considered practicing before. It excites me to be able to share more of Humming Puppy with the world in the years to come. The teachings of yoga are the greatest gift I’ve been given and to be able to share these gifts with our students who inspire me on a daily basis is an honor!
Kunal is the founder and CEO of Eugene, a product that helps people make smart health choices through affordable and guided genetic screenings. He was previously the founder and CEO at OutTrippin (a travel planning startup) and Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Angelcube (Melbourne’s first startup accelerator) and Inspire9 (Melbourne’s original community-led cowering space)
He is an experienced entrepreneur and product designer focused on building products that bring simplicity and accessibility to a confusing genetics+healthcare space. Kunal has a keen interest in companies that pursue global markets, having operated extensively in the Australian, US, Latin American and Asian markets.
Kunal started Eugene to promote equal access to genetic testing and to improve ethnic and racial representation in genomic and healthcare research. He firmly believes that if new genomic technologies aren’t more inclusive to diverse populations, we will worsen existing health disparities and create new ones. And he probably won't shut up about it either, since he can be insufferable like that

At the end of the week, we savour the satisfaction of work well done over a cheese plate and glass of something nice at our friendly Friday Night Drinks.

Wade Institute is home to The University of Melbourne’s Master of Entrepreneurship. When you’re teaching people to create, make and innovate, the space they occupy should invite them to create new things from the moment they walk in. The Wade Institute centre will do just that.
Rather than walk into a building full of classrooms and offices, students will enter a space with a kit of parts, from walls and screens to different desk parts and lights. This main studio workshop is a white canvas with colourful parts ready to become whatever students and staff need it to be – from open plan classroom to office, customer lab or forum to pitch their business idea.
