To assist the travel industry in looking after their mental wellbeing, Tourism Australia is organising a series of Wellness Workshops in India aimed at providing a toolkit of practical tips that will help build confidence in the ability to maintain and build mental wellbeing.
Nishant Kashikar, Country Manager – India and Gulf, Tourism Australia said, “Pre-COVID our travel industry was focused on promoting the many benefits of travel to consumers, including the positive effects of travel to overall wellness and mental wellbeing. Now with travel on hold, the workshops have been planned to impart effective strategies, techniques and mechanisms for our travel industry colleagues to manage stress and maintain their general mental wellbeing in the challenging times. It is also a positive step towards supporting the resilience of our industry and our tourism partners in these challenging times.”
This first-of-a-kind initiative in the travel industry includes a curated set of sessions featuring veteran motivational speakers and mental health experts and will be open to Aussie Specialist Agents and all members of the Indian travel trade.
Facilitated through expertise and guidance from industry veterans and field experts, the month-long activity will commence on July 30, 2021 and will run until 20, August 2021 and will be helmed by seasoned professionals: Shiv Khera, motivational speaker and author of international bestseller You Can Win; Birender Ahluwalia, founder of The Positivity Company and former sales & distribution director at Max Bupa; Dr. Harish Shetty, psychiatrist and prominent visiting faculty at Mumbai University
