Does your workplace promote a healthy work environment for its staff? Did you know that a positive work environment increases output while lowering absenteeism, bad performance, and health conditions?
Today I spoke with Marvin Weinman. Marvin is a company director and business advisor with over 20 years of experience managing companies in several countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. With a track record of driving major change and improvement programs, his executive experience includes the MD of George Weston Foods. He was Managing Director of Boral Building products with sales of over $1.2 billion and he served as general manager for Laminex Industries and Formica Asia.
Join me as Marvin and I discuss how managing directors deal with the corporate environment and change and how people as senior in the corporate world as Marvin do after they retire. We also speak about Outcomes Australia, Sharelife, and his program afterwork.live. Tune in to know more about these non-profit organisations and why they’re important!

Hello and welcome to another episode of Unstress. Today, we’re going to step back and explore humanity and what led us to this point in time, as well as the purpose of existence and some of the existential crises that we are currently experiencing. And who better to talk to about that than Jeremy Lent.
Jeremy Lent, described by Guardian journalist George Monbiot as “one of the greatest thinkers of our age,” is an author and speaker whose work investigates the underlying causes of our civilization’s existential crisis, and explores pathways toward a life-affirming future.
In our conversation, we explore his award-winning books, The Patterning Instinct: A Cultural History of Humanity’s Search for Meaning and The Web of Meaning: Integrating Science and Traditional Wisdom to Find Our Place in the Universe. We also talk about sedentism, worldview, and so much more.
How do you know if you’re experiencing burnout? Are you aware of the connection between our immune systems and emotions? If you want to know more about these topics, then this is the episode for you.
Today we welcome a returning guest, Dr Suzy Green. Suzy is a clinical psychologist, founder of the Positivity Institute and on a mission to reduce the impact of mental health in our workplace, in our schools, and in our communities to “create a flourishing world”.
Have you ever heard of the term “loop gain?” How about “eupnea?” Well, here are just some of the interesting topics we will discuss today. There’s so much to learn about breathing. This week we welcomed a returning guest, Patrick McKeown. He is a wealth of information. His book, The Breathing Cure, is definitely a must-read as well. Join me as we review some of the wonderful things we talked about during our conversation.
Patrick McKeown is the Founder and Director of the Training and Education Institute, the Buteyko Clinic International. Throughout his childhood and into his twenties, he suffered from severe asthma, breathing problems, poor concentration and disturbed sleep but Buteyko Breathing Technique changed this.
“If you ask your patients the right questions, then often they’ll not only tell you what’s wrong with them, but they’ll sometimes even tell you how to fix it. If you’re listening carefully enough.”
I had a mentor 30 years ago, Dr Janet Travell, who said this to me and I still remember and value it to this very day.
This week I had the absolute pleasure of talking with a sleep physician, Dr Dave McCarty. Today we are further highlighting the topic of sleep which is a big and important topic and is always worth revisiting. Join me as we speak about the 4 key questions to ask your patients, sleep-disordered breathing conditions, micropore tape, and many more.
Dr Dave McCarty attended medical school at Duke University and completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine in Boston at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dave began his career practising primary health care, but after a handful of years in practise, he followed in his own words, “My own white rabbit into a whole new world called sleep medicine”. Enjoy!
