Where a common language shapes a Culture of Connection

Why Strategic Connection is Important.

It leads to true engagement, which means your people are psychologically present to do their work. They understand what to do; they have what they need; and they have a supportive manager and a supportive team. They know why their work matters.

They are work ready!

The BEST of Connections

Why we do what we do.


Every person deserves the opportunity to have meaningful connections at work.

We specialise in disrupting the hype, catch phrases, and narrative that holds us back from connecting. We dig deep into the research, experience, and hundreds of stories that all have glimmers of inspiration… we equip you with “HOW” to Connect?

It is a given that we have academic competence. However, more valuable to you, is that our personal experiences give us insight and perspective to develop with you the tools and frameworks that work best for your organisation.

Translating frameworks into tangible solutions is where our passion lies.

Frameworks are only the skeletal structure and deliver only the format to meet your specific needs; they must be filled out with the tools of understanding mental health and well-being; equipping individuals, teams, and leaders with the capabilities, pathways, and practical skills to enable your organisation to excel.

Quite simply, our promise to you is that we deliver what we say. We know what we are talking about and can make your journey with us challenging, interesting, and worthy of your time.

Hugs xoxo

I was fortunate to come across Julie via LinkedIn (the bright shirts drew me to her), after reviewing her profile and website - I knew Julie was the right fit to deliver our MHFA training effectively to our people at PBPL! 

We have had some impressive feedback come through from those who have had the opportunity to attend Julie's training, she has run a variety of courses for us including the MHFA, MHFA Refresher and MHFA for Leaders both onsite and our employees regularly visit the Collective Hub.

Julie has also guided us over the last couple of year's through obtaining our Skilled Workplace Recognition and continues to work with the business on our Mental Health strategy and regularly connects with our MHFAiders to provide additional support and continuous learning. 

Personally, Julie has been a tremendous support and mentor through my own development and learnings and a much needed voice of Mental Health First Aid in the workplace! 

I am really proud of Julie, I have enjoyed watching her evolve and thrive over the last 3 years her passion, dedication and the courageous conversations she is having when it comes to Mental Health in the workplace.
