This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Guest Speaker: Kathryn Mannix

Topic: Listening Skills and the Art of Conversations

Dr. Kathryn Mannix is a palliative care consultant, writer and thought leader. She is the author of Sunday Times bestselling book ‘With the End in Mind’ and her latest book, ‘Listen’ leads readers through the art of tender conversations, which she will explore with us in this live online session.

Dr. Mannix joins us live from the UK to discuss ‘Listening Skills and the Art of Conversation’.

Dr. Mannix has spent her medical career working with people who have incurable, advanced illnesses. She started possibly the world’s first Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) clinic exclusively for palliative care patients and devised “CBT First Aid” training to allow those working in the sector to add new skills to further assist palliative care patients. Dr. Mannix has worked in teams in hospices, hospitals and patients’ own homes, optimising quality of life even as death is approaching. Having worked with many thousands of dying people, she has found their ability to deal with illness and death both fascinating and inspirational. Dr. Mannix believes better public awareness about what happens as we die would reduce fear and enable people to discuss what matters most, with the people who matter the most to them.

This ‘Special Event Speaker Series’ begins at 7:00 a.m. AEDT and will conclude at 8:00 a.m. AEDT and includes a 15-minute Q&A session with Dr. Mannix.

This Speaker Series session will allow for a 15-minute Q&A session at the end of Kathryn's presentation.

Share with your colleagues, tell your family and friends to join in – but whatever you do, don’t miss this opportunity to hear from a world-leading expert.
