Short Cuts: Creativity, Mental Health and Your Business


Short Cuts: Creativity, Mental Health and Your Business

Dominic Furber (CEO, Paxx Group) and Carly Wilford

There's no hiding from the fact that the music industry is one of the most demanding on mental health. Long hours, drug and alcohol culture, and stress-inducing events led to findings that 66 per cent of participants had high to very high levels of psychological distress, which is more than four times that found in the general population. For many, the forced break due to Covid allowed an opportunity to step off the hamster wheel of never-ending work and reassess how they deal with the world. Dom returns to ADE in 2022 to discuss the benefit of taking a break, including the value of creating a work-life balance, and in his case, the introduction to meditation, positivity, and exercise and how it has impacted his businesses.
