    Become Your Own Advocate with Brittany Elmslie

    Become Your Own Advocate with Brittany Elmslie

    There is much to learn from other people's stories, if we take the time to stop and listen. Storytelling can be incredibly powerful and help us to find meaning, build connections and drive change. My guest this week, Brittany Elmslie has a story that's both extraordinary and extremely relatable.

    Brit has achieved more than your average 25 year old - she has reached the pinnacle of international sport, winning 2 Olympic gold medals. As the youngest person on the Australian Olympic team in 2012, Brittany's strength, drive and determination got her to the podium. But there was a cost to her success and a challenging journey behind those medals.

    In episode 179 of Be The Drop, Brit reflects on the personal shame she felt during her Olympic career and how she overcame it by learning self-compassion. She discusses her retirement from sport in 2019 and the process she went through to discover her new "why", this is a must-listen for anyone going through a time of transition.

    Self-Development Through Art Therapy With Bel Ryan

    Self-Development Through Art Therapy With Bel Ryan

    I'm a talker; but as a student and trainer of effective communication, I also know that communication is not just about talking. Communication begins with the stories we tell ourselves, and often we're not even aware of the impact our self-talk is having on us. This week's guest explains this concept and how art therapy can help.
    Bel Ryan describes art as naturally therapeutic. Through her work with teenagers as a school counsellor, she discovered that people are able to express themselves through art, even when they're unable or unwilling to express themselves verbally. In her business Ignite Art Therapies, Bel works with clients, using art therapy to help the unknown, become known.
    In today's episode of Be The Drop, Bel discusses the human disconnect that exists in today's digital and hyper-connected world. She provides valuable insights into the process of art therapy, as well as tips and other simple tools to help today's busy professionals understand themselves better.

    Another form of communication that we love is comedy. As Adelaide Fringe gears up to take over Adelaide, Eliza Thomas and Wendy Torbet offer you the opportunity to learn funny through An Introduction to Stand Up Comedy Writing; access more details via this link.

    Accessing Business Resources: Tips For Founders

    Accessing Business Resources: Tips For Founders

    Business founders are hard working, driven people. We commit 100% to our business(es), but with the burden of small business financial pressures, it can often feel like we have to juggle everything ourselves. However, my guest this week understands how important it is for founders to be part of a tribe and share business resources in order to support growth. Peta Ellis knows a thing or two about growth. As CEO of River City Labs, the company grew 550% and post-acquisition expanded into 3 states. Now, as co-founder of Tribe Global and Peak Performance Persona, Peta delivers programs that help business founders to create good personal routines and helps in building healthy business eco-systems, frameworks and infrastructure. In this episode of Be The Drop, Peta discusses issues facing founders in tech and business today, including resources available to help them. She reflects on the most important factors determining business founder success and the power of storytelling in connecting with your tribe. ---- Peta's episode was recorded LIVE at SouthStart in Adelaide - a convergence of humans, impact and technology.

    Technology And Customer Empathy With Nick Crocker

    When you know what you want, decision making is easier. The hard part is figuring out what you want.

He discusses the huge impact on his career that being surrounded by tech startup legends had and he shares his thoughts on the challenges tech companies have in demonstrating real empathy towards their customers. ---- Nick's episode was recorded LIVE at SouthStart in Adelaide - a convergence of humans, impact and technology.
