Worldwide Branding Member Anthony Beasley Takes a Stand Against Corporate Bullying Today

Anthony BeasleyAnthony Beasley, a recent Worldwide Branding inductee, recently announced his participation in a campaign against bullying in the workplace.

Mr. Beasley will be a key presenter at this year’s Safety Institute of Australia ‘Visions’ Safety Conference on the Gold Coast which is taking place today, November 17, 2014. As part of the presentation’s pre-qualification processes, Mr. Beasley had to prepare a White Paper regarding the need for Accredited Training in the topic of “Managing and Preventing the Risk of Workplace Bullying.” This is because in Australia, there is currently no accredited competency-based program.

Mr. Beasley’s White Paper was accepted, and his team has supported him in the development of an excellent Prezi based presentation.

And in exploring beyond the White Paper, the topic generated such interest with Mr. Beasley’s team and clients, that he and his colleagues recently submitted a detailed application to the Australian Skills Regulator (ASQA) with two draft units to be accepted and released as nationally accredited. These are the first of their kind in Australia.

ASTRA Group Services LogoMr. Beasley and his team has also prepared a media release to align with this exciting development in a topic that costs our economy between $6B to $36Billion per year, and has tragically taken lives for those on the receiving end of bullying.

Regardless of the country or industry – Mr. Beasley feels that the topic of bullying in the workplace is a subject that is of interest and value to all.

Donna York, President of HARK Inc., Announces Screenings of Hope on the Horizon: An Expedition for ALS

HARK logoAt the helm of HARK Inc. Donna York has long been pushing to raise awareness of the disease that has stricken families and friends across the nation, and taken the lives of many beloved individuals. ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a condition that is often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. Since its establishment, the organization has made tremendous strides through the production of “Hope on the Horizon: An Expedition for ALS,” a documentary that premiered on November 9, 2013 in the private screening room of NBC Universal.

From the website:

The 48 highest peaks in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, also known as the “4000 footers”, cover over 250 miles of various terrain and over 70,000 feet of elevation. Four hikers, including the filmmaker, set out to summit all 48 in a single trip on foot, two completed the journey and reached the 48th summit in 24 days to raise awareness and funding for ALS patients and their families.

HARK’s Hope on the Horizon Documentary is the first step in “Changing the way the world views ALS” and ensuring that the world knows what the disease is and how devastating it is to families that are affected by it. As we navigated our way through ALS we realized the severe lack of awareness that existed about this disease outside of the ALS community.

Hope on the Horizon is not just about ALS, it’s about facing life’s challenges with courage and overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds every day. The documentary will bring viewers a firsthand view of two sets of challenges simultaneously. The challenges of negotiating the fragile beauty and rugged terrain of the White Mountains serves as a compelling backdrop to show true challenges and hardships faced by ALS victims and their loved ones in dealing with this devastating disease.

Through this film HARK will change the way the world views ALS, increase awareness of this fatal disease and raise funding to provide financial assistance to ALS patients and their families as they face a challenge far greater than the White Mountains.

Screenings will be held soon! Don’t forget to get your tickets, bring your family and friends, and join Ms. York and her team of dedicated professionals. Below, please find the list of upcoming screenings:
