South Australia The density requirement of 1 person per 4 square metres still applies for Defined public activities but any given room or enclosed area cannot have more than 75 people present.

A facility with multiple rooms and outdoor areas can have up to 300 patrons, provided none of those rooms exceeds the 1 person per 4 square metres rule, to a maximum of 75 people per room. Also, if two Defined public activities take place at adjacent places, (dining in clubrooms and playing sport on an adjacent oval) up to 300 people could be dining, and another 300 could be playing or watching sport on the oval.

Tasmania Gatherings are restricted to 80 people (excluding staff) and the four square metre rule per person applies.


New South Wales
Currently 20 people but from July 1 “The number of people allowed inside indoor venues will be determined by the one person per 4 square metre rule, with no upper limit. This includes function centres. All activity must be seated only.” so a room that could hold 300 can now have up to 80 people. 
Victoria Currently 10 people

Western Australia Activities listed below are allowed for up to 100 people per single undivided space, up to 300 people in total per venue over multiple spaces (100/300 rule), while ensuring physical distancing, good hygiene and the 2 square metre rule are followed:

Jesus Cares Gala Dinner – May 30

Please join Jesus Cares for a great night with live entertainment, a spectacular dinner and charity auction. It is to be held at the Novotel, Parramatta.

Jesus Cares has been operating for over 30 years, serving the poor, the marginalised and the homeless. We give people hope who feel hopeless and befriend those who have no friends. Jesus Cares is not just another welfare organisation, as we believe they need more than food and clothing and so what we offer is hope and are committed in connecting them to God through Jesus Christ. So our focus is on providing for their basic physical needs and then giving them some spiritual resources that can help change their lives, and assist them in breaking away from their current circumstances.

Our mission is to spread the good news of Jesus throughout the Sydney area by showing the love that we know from Jesus. We have many different initiatives around the Sydney area. In the inner city on Thursday’s we give out hot breakfast to the homeless, poor and lonely people of Sydney and on Friday and Saturday nights we have a food van that offers hot food to those that need it. On Sundays there is a service accompanied by a hot meal. In Western Sydney we run an Op shop along with a mini food bank. This area has a high level of unemployment and public housing. This offers a great opportunity to minister and spread the gospel. In South Western Sydney we have a book table and reach out to multicultural communities.

If we were to summarize our mission into one sentence it would be to spread the good news of Jesus and change lives for the better through showing real Christian values such as loving others, obedience and trust and through this we are equipping volunteers for effective Christian service. Through helping those that are downtrodden in the ways that we truly glorify God and Jesus.

There will also be an opportunity to give to this important cause at the dinner.

Location: Novotel Parramatta

Date: May 30th 2020 from 6:30pm

About the Speaker: Wassim Dabboussi

Wassim has had a life of hard challengers and great success.

Wassim came to Australia as a migrant with no English and grew up in Cabramatta during the tough years. Wassim left Cabramatta as soon as he turned 18 to pursue a career, by 30 years of age he was obese and then went on to lose 25 kgs and own a Jets gym franchise.

Wassim is only 41 years old and has been married for 20 years and in the same relationship for 23 years. Wassim had marriage difficulties for a time but was able to bring the relationship back from near break up. In the early days of his business career he lost over $100,000 in one day, worked hard and clawed his way back to his then wealth within 6 months.

Wassim then went on to be in the top 10% of the sales team in a company that employed over 500 sales people and made over $4 million dollars a month and won sales awards. In Wassim’s second year of business when the Global Financial Crises (GFC) hit he still made over $250,000. He has invested over $200,000 in Personal Development over the last 17 years which has clearly had a profound impact with the companies he has worked with and for and he is very driven to help you achieve greater success.

Testimonials:

Adisa Okanovic recommends Wassim Dabboussi

There are no words to describe how grateful I am to have Wassim by my side over the years. I was in such a dark place when we met and if it wasn’t for Wassim, I would never have come out of that. He saw potential in me when all I saw was worthlessness. He guided me out of every hopeless belief I had in myself and into a truly limitless future. By far one of the most inspiring and influential men I have ever come across.

Lisa Sculthorpe recommends Wassim Dabboussi

Wassim has always provided truthful, compassionate and thought provoking advice and guidance to me since the day I met him. in life, love, business and spirituality he has been a steadfast advisor to me and provided pivotal knowledge to help me live my best life

Phillip Su recommends Wassim Dabboussi

I highly recommend Wassim as a coach and mentor. He is exactly what I needed to take my personal life and business career to the next level. Through the Coaching Program, Wassim has highlighted my strengths and weaknesses and empowered me to take control of my decisions and set achievable goals. I believe it’s important to have a coach to guide us and prevent us from making mistakes others have made before us. Wassim’s wealth of knowledge in the mindset, sales and NLP realm is very useful to tackle any type of issue and he’s able to work with me through my current roadblocks.

After starting the coaching program I have learnt to be grateful, set specific and realistic goals and plan for the future by deciding to act now. He showed me that I can overcome all my limiting beliefs and can achieve all the successes that I desire. For anyone who wants to take their life to the next level, Wassim is your Man!

Effective Strategies to Retain High Performing Staff – February 26

Have you ever had stellar employees who were exactly what you were looking for and you feared you would lose them? Through this workshop we will learn how to retain the best staff in your organization. One of these strategies is to engage with them, communicate and see them as a resource, understand their point of view instead of the typical employee to employer communication.

These effective strategies will also work with average employees and boost morale which will lead to being more productive since they too feel they are being more understood and their needs are being met. Can you imagine what would happen if all the employees in your organization were actively engaged with the business, and relating well with the boss and the other employees? Productivity would explode along with morale! This would be from everyone feeling they were valued and their unique needs were understood. This all leads to a deepening of the trust between employer and the employees.In the very simplest terms this can be summed up as happier stellar employees=higher productivity, better performance and more likely to stay with your organization rather than jump ship the moment a slightly more attractive offer appears.What you will get from this workshop: The value that you will get from this workshop is learning how to better understand and communicate with your top employees so that they don’t leave your organization but instead are incredibly loyal to it. For the other employees it will raise productivity and loyalty to both the organization and the cause behind the organization. This would mean that all the staff would also become more loyal to you as a leader and become effective and contributing workers. Not only because they are getting paid, but also because they feel as though they are contributing to a greater cause. They show up, want to be there, and consistently feel good about their accomplishments when they leave the workplace.Engaged participants can expect to walk away with:

· Communication skills and strategies for retaining High Performing staff.· A heightened sensitivity to opportunities to engage with and influence others.· Some may become more aware of aspects of resistance to change.This event is suited to:

Department Heads, Team Leaders, Directors of Operations, HR Managers, Middle/Upper management. Small to medium business owners/managers are welcome, as are all who have employees who report directly to them.

This event is not suitable for:

Solo entrepreneurs, Consultants and Owner/Managers who are not interested in having more productive and profitable employees.

About the Speaker:

Abe Moses – Is an Ag. Science graduate with a background of 22 years of consulting for quality and continuous improvement. Abe spent time in the US, where he was promoted through general manager-ship to Director of Quality and Training. He is calm, yet relentless, passionate and different. His motivation arises from his desire “to make a difference” in the world. His approach is to engage, listen, coach, influence and mentor people towards achieving their highest potential. He brings an awareness of the creative capacity within the business and progressively empowers leaders towards sustainable excellence. His mantra is “Anything is Possible”. Abe’s skill set encompasses:· Effective communication skills for business alignment and coherence.· Executive coaching, group coaching and facilitating for outcomes.· Creating and implementing quality management and continuous improvement programs.· Organic “systems thinking” and organisational alignment.· Mindfulness and breath work as a health and wellbeing practice.· Practical spirituality – to support life at home, at work and in relationships.

Abe has made many significant contributions to his employees and clients.

· Business Alignment: By recognising the whole system, Abe influenced his major US client to align with optimising the overarching KPI, thus breaking through the existing “Silo Mentality”. His new measurement methodology developed in collaboration with managers across different departments, brought an alignment within the entire business, focused on playing their role in increasing the bottom line. AFI Waterville, Maine.

· Facilitating for Results: In 2006-2008, Abe met fortnightly with a Production Team and facilitated the meetings to focus on their goal. He ensured that each member was accountable to show up, to be present, and to update the group as to what got in the way of making incremental gains. The outcome was weeks where the output increased by 2 to 4% from the commencement levels in spite of using old equipment. GV Pakenham, Vic

· Communication: ‘In my capacity as the Practice Manager in a health care profession with a small staff of approx 12, some of the best communication skills I employed were an “Active Listening” and a “Clear Communication” skill. These may be known by a few different names, (e.g. Radical Workplace Communication), but these are essentially the same. Empowering my staff to use these tools resulted in a safer, happier and congruent team of people, who felt heard, appreciated and acknowledged and hence enjoyed working productively together.’ — RM, Faulconbridge, 10 October 2019.

TOPIC

Would you like to have more time? Would you like to get more done? YES and YES I hear you say. We all have 24 hrs in a day, and yet it is astounding how different results we want and get from each day.

Too many of us work too much, have too many hours in the business or at work and have very limited energy left for family and interests. Let’s change this!

In this presentation, I will share gold nuggets from my Boardroom modules that I teach and apply with my clients with great results.

From this night, you will learn:

· Why you should always start with the outcome in mind

· Planning the big picture and your 7 strategic chunks to not get lost in implementation and busyness that doesn’t serve the bigger outcome

· Using 20 min power time to energise your day and week.

As always, it will be an energising night with laughter AND results, so get in the room and get more time and energy in 2020.

We look forward to having LOTS of new faces in the room and, of course, as many of the usual suspects as possible, too.
