An outspoken former hurler, a local HR manager and an experienced GP are the three speakers at the Kilkenny Business Club’s ‘Healthy Mind, Healthy Workplace’ seminar at Hotel Kilkenny on Friday, February 21.
Conor Cusack, a former Cork hurler and brother of Donal Og Cusack, Niamh Hayden of Glanbia and Dr Harry Barry from Drogheda are a very knowledgeable line-up to tackle the issues of stress and depression both in the workplace and at home. The seminar, entitled ‘A Healthy Mind, A Healthy workplace’ will raise funds for the local Samaritans in the process with admission for the event at €10. Mr Cusack has gone down very well locally, and recently spoke at an event in St Mary’s Cathedral. He is a project engineer by trade, and this week his well read blog saw him reveal that he is gay. Niamh Hayden is a Human Resources Manager with Glanbia, with responsibiity for staff in Ballyraggett and Virginia, and the upcoming development in Belview. Dr Barry, from Drogheda, is a published author on mental health issues writing ‘Flagging Stress - toxic stress and how to avoid it.’ Tickets are available from Hotel Kilkenny; Property Partners John Buggy, Parliament Street and Electro-City at Purcellsinch.
