Next Event - PBN December Networking and End of Year Event
Welcome to our new sponsor Bitumen Billboards We`re really pleased to have them on board! We have been using their services for several years and love the visibility that we are getting with the mobile billboard. And the owner Stuart Grant has also come on board as our new President. ...
Join us for a relaxed networking evening on the 17th October at Safety Beach Yacht Club! We has a spectacular evening last year at this venue. Great connections made whilst watching the sun go down over the bay.
This year we have a special treat for you! Our long term member Rahona Valley will be doing a wine tasting for us on the night. We at PBN are great fans of their range of wines already but we are thrilled to be able to share this with you all.
Not a member? Not a problem, everyone is welcome. We also have a special one time offer to try us out for non members. Visit our website to book today! ...
We have such a lovely and talented bunch of people here at PBN so we thought we`d introduce you to them. This week we chatted to PBN member Andrew Hoskins from Nurse Next Door Mornington Peninsula.
What’s your purpose? My purpose as leader of Nurse Next Door Mornington Peninsula is Making Lives Better® for those who are limited in function either by advancing age or disability. . . . What can you help with? My team can help with a range of tasks, such as simple day to day household chores, assistance with outings such as hairdresser or medical appointments, going to the cinema or theatre, for walks or grocery shopping. We place a high value on overall health maintenance, so our caregivers ensure our clients have assistance with nutrition (food preparation, meal preparation), and assistance with both physical and cognitive exercises as guided by their health professionals. . . . What excites you? I am most happy when engaged with people - be it providing education to other health practitioners in my role as a physiotherapist, speaking with people in the community about Nurse Next Door, or socialising with friends. . . . Who do you admire and why? I hold particular admiration for those who make a real difference to the lives of others. I admire everyone who makes a contribution to facilitating positive experiences for those with disability, such as support coordinators, plan managers, nurses and caregivers. I also admire the dedication and genuine empathy of health practitioners, and carers who work at aged care facilities or in the community. Folks who function in the local community do just as much for people at a grass roots level as major historical figures such as Nelson Mandella, and the influential US presidents such as JFK. . . . What’s your favourite saying or quote? Lean forward. On purpose.

We have such a lovely and talented bunch of people here at PBN so we thought we`d introduce you to them . This week we chatted to PBN member @benjaminwatkinscounselling
What’s your purpose? To create a place where I can support people in making changes and pushing through challenging stages of life without the fear of judgement or stigma. Especially for men so we can break the stigma around getting mental health (or any form of) support. . . . What can you help with? Stress, anxiety, depression, anger, goal setting, feelings of being stuck, relationships, mental performance coaching. . . . What excites you? I get excited by seeing my clients grow and make the changes they want in life as well as seeing my practice grow in a way that allows me to achieve my goals. . . . Who do you admire and why? Anyone who achieves their goals as they have pushed hard and done the work! . . . What’s your favourite saying or quote? "All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." - T. E. Lawrence
