Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Inspired To Thriive

Respected people-focused company, Shiift, celebrated year four by holding their first 2024 Thriive Event last week, bringing together over 40 women in an uplifting evening event which inspired conversations and self-reflection.


Participants were guided through a series of lively soul-searching activities, sharing experiences with their peers, and insightful observations about their journeys so far.


Thriive is a monthly women-only event held by Shiift, a local company which specialises in people, culture, leadership, and performance.


Their invigorating two-hour evening workshops are high-energy and packed full of useful content about how to navigate both hectic lives and demanding careers.


Held monthly, the first workshop focused on setting your future self-up for success.


Attendees were asked to imagine where they would be in five years and also 10 years’ time – asking the question – is the person you imagine similar to the person you are today?


Small group discussions were held, and animated conversations ensued followed by an opportunity for each group to share their thoughts with the rest of the room.


Workshop facilitator, Judy Porter, offered entertaining and thought-provoking dialogue on the topic and encouraged everyone to treat their future selves as a dear friend.


“By understanding and liking your future self you can make better informed decisions today,” she said.


“People who are more connected with their future selves are more successful and experience greater life satisfaction.”


The next event will take place on Thursday 21st March and will cover the interesting topic of ‘Finding Utopia For Introverts and Extroverts’.


All women are welcome and invited to join the group for monthly inspiration and connection that enables you to truly Thriive.
