En­cour­ag­ing busi­nesses to lighten up

Tweed Daily News - - LIFE -

THE aim of the new Gold Coast Busi­ness Laugh­ter Club is to help re­duce stress, anx­i­ety and de­pres­sion among the re­gion’s busi­ness peo­ple.

The group was founded by Ald­wyn Al­tuney and Tracey Kor­man, who have brought in Donna-leigh Per­fect and co­me­dian Michael Ben­nett to or­gan­ise events.

“About one in three peo­ple in Aus­tralia have de­pres­sion or anx­i­ety,” Ms Al­tuney said.

“We want busi­ness peo­ple to loosen up, live longer, re­lax and cre­ate great con­nec­tions through laugh­ter.

“Michael, Tracey and my­self have all had de­pres­sion and are all in busi­ness. I have also had three friends, aged be­tween 31 and 45, take their own lives, which is ab­so­lutely tragic.

“To­gether, we can all make a dif­fer­ence. Busi­ness peo­ple could do with a few more laughs.”

For more de­tails about the club and its De­cem­ber 19 event, call Ms Al­tuney on 0409 895 055 or visit Gold Coast Busi­ness Laugh­ter Club on Face­book.
