Sending Our Thoughts And Support To NSW & VIC At This Time

While I am writing this email, VIC & NSW are in lockdown and looking to extend, while other parts of the country have an array of restrictions. The stress on individuals and on businesses right across the country is at an all-time high and many have pivoted so much that it now hurts.

As much as we might be sick of hearing this, it will get better, and we need to make sure that right now we are looking after ourselves and supporting others, rather than looking for blame.

So, to everyone in NSW & VIC especially, we send our thoughts and support to you as you go through possibly one of the toughest lockdowns you have had thus far.

The most important thing is to keep your mind active and positive by being innovative even in your day-to-day activities. This can be a great time of growth if we are looking for it.

At Proteus, albeit currently working from home, we are increasing our Virtual offerings so that people can engage in relevant and inspirational learning while they have some down time. Visit our website and see what is of interest to you.

But above all, keep your spirits up and if you can’t, then make sure you turn to your support network, because one day they will require the same of you.

Stay safe and stay happy.

COVID changes to Scheduled programs in SA & NSW

With the current changes to COVID-19 restrictions we have had to move quickly to make changes to some of our face-to-face programs. Here are the current changes:



Grant Davis Presenting To Oji In Victoria

Grant Davis – Head of Education, visited Melbourne from Adelaide to work with the team from Oji. Unfortunately, he had to bail during Day 1 as the Victorian Government ordered a Snap Lockdown almost immediately. With a delayed flight and then 3 hours at the testing sight at Adelaide airport and then isolation until he got his result back (all clear), it was quite a trip. How doing the simple things that we have done for 28 years, have changed? Thanks Grant.


Brett Hutchinson In Port Pirie.

Creating A Positive Culture Virtual Workshop

Creating and leading a no-whinge, solution-focused workplace.

Creating Positive Cultures is about giving people the skills and permission to destroy dysfunction, kill off negative influences and the space for all your positive people to shine and thrive.

Culture is all about your behaviours, it is what to do. So great leaders and workplaces don’t allow their culture to happen by default, they design
it together by agreeing to operate above the line in a positive, professional and proactive way.


  • Creating, leading and modelling great cultures
  • Staying positive and understanding the importance of recognition
  • Moving from entitlement to responsibility
  • Dealing with miserable people and ‘fighting clean’
  • Leading a robust, no-whinge and solution-focused culture
  • Helping your positive people to shine
