Kendra Wallace – Director Business Solutions at Kingfisher Group Limited
With over 20 years’ experience in the Integrated Facilities Management industry, both internationally and within New Zealand Kendra has been working across a range of industries. Having sat on all sides of a number of outsourced contracts – the service provider side, the client side, and the procurement side she brings a unique and diverse perspective.
Not only does Kendra understand the need to take a holistic view when creating solutions and doing the right thing, her experience has provided her with clear insights into the challenges, drivers and opportunities that both the clients and service providers face, whilst understanding what success looks like and what it takes to do things differently.
Kendra has always had a fascination with the brain, the curiosity about why we do the things we do, the ways we behave – both good and bad and how we can re-programme our brain. She has learnt first-hand the importance of maintaining your most valuable asset…YOU!
As Facilities Managers and Asset owners we look after hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of assets every day, in one way or another, across a variety of different portfolios from multi-storied buildings, single buildings, harbour bridges, hospitals, schools, prisons, the list goes on. We have plans, processes, and systems in place to manage and look after those assets, however as my experience has shown we rarely have one in place for us.
Our personal wellbeing is one of the most valuable assets we have, it is what enables us to be the awesome individuals that we are. So, what happens when we come face to face with a life changing event, when your world gets tipped upside down and what was “normal” suddenly changes?
The road to recovery and discovery pushes us out of our comfort zones, challenges us emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually at the same time providing us with opportunities to change and grow ourselves.
Returning to work after an injury or illness can be challenging for everyone, not just the employer and the employee. There needs to be a balance between positivity and realism as no two return to work situations are ever the same.
Come along and get some tips, insights and new tools on how to fuel your mind effectively, help you drive change personally and professionally and how to handle the ups and downs of life by releasing old behaviours, patterns and energy and how you can supercharge your lifestyle and wellbeing.
