The PRWIRE Press Releases http:// 2017-02-28T07:14:10Z Ezispeak – Making Interpreting Simple In The 21st Century 2017-02-28T07:14:10Z ezispeak-making-interpreting-simple-in-the-21st-century One of the main barriers to speedy and efficient health outcomes for non-English speaking people in Australia is language and speedy interpretation. With so many different languages already spoken in Australia, and more arriving into the nation every day, traditional interpreting methods have become cumbersome, inefficient and ineffective. ezispeak has recognised this problem and moved quickly to solve it by changing the way interpreting services are provided in Australia’s health care sector. ezispeak breaks down traditional barriers with extraordinary ease, using its friendly and caring team of remote-based interpreters to replace old-fashioned and inefficient face-to-face interviews. It’s Interpreting on Demand© “We founded ezispeak because it was clear to us that the traditional methods of interpreting services were costly and outdated," says ezispeak CEO Rebecca Haynes. “On many occasions, we found that traditional interpreting methods left the consumer and healthcare provider with a disappointing and unsatisfactory outcome, because of time constraints and a limited amount of language coverage available.” ezispeak has changed that situation for its healthcare providers and consumers, and is keen to share its successes with more organisations in the healthcare sector. “We are looking to partner with more digital health technology providers.” Ms Haynes said. “We want to provide more seamless health delivery outcomes for non-English speakers.” “Our model supplies both the service provider and the consumer with a speedy and efficient solution that delivers a near universal positive outcome for both parties,” Ms Haynes said. This unprecedented success in interpreter services has led ezispeak to further expand its portfolio, by complimenting its established audio suite with a new video translation product. “The success of ezispeak’s digital audio technology has propelled us to launch a video and automated text translation service”, said Ms Haynes. “We are looking for interested parties to partner with us in a pilot of this new cutting-edge business solution in interpreter services.” The world-leading health and care service provider, Bupa, is a regular user of ezispeak’s interpreter services in its provision of medical assessments to visa applicants in Australia. Many other public hospitals in Victoria also use the ezispeak service with great success through Allied Health and the health procurement body, Health Purchasing Victoria. * ezispeak’s interpreters are online, speaking to patients within 60 seconds, in 92% of all cases. * 99% of all interpreting requests are successfully handled by a team member within three minutes of the customer or healthcare provider picking up the telephone. - ezispeak’s pioneering service model and technology is an ideal solution for any non-English speaker consumer requirements, right across the entire digital health and e-health sector. In a short space of time, ezispeak has achieved stunning success when used as a replacement for traditional face-to-face interpreters. - The Accessibility, Ease of Use, Quality, and Cost all improve when ezispeak is compared with traditional interpreting methodology. - Missed appointments and inefficiencies can cost health providers large sums of money, but with ezispeak, these costs are almost entirely removed. - An impressive 85% of patients surveyed said that the ezispeak service met their needs; the most powerful endorsement a company can receive. - ezispeak is changing the way hospitals, doctors, healthcare providers and nurses interact with patients who need interpreters.

Calling all stand out talent! There’s still time to enter the 2017 Hair Expo Awards... 2017-02-28T03:56:00Z calling-all-stand-out-talent-there-s-still-time-to-enter-the-2017-hair-expo-awards Tuesday 28 February 2017, Sydney: Have you got amazing ideas that you can’t wait to share? Do you stand out in both your creative vision as well as your personal achievements? Is your team just the best, has your business taken off, or is your salon the most beautiful place you know? If the answer is yes, then it sounds like you’re ready to go for the big one… the Hair Expo Awards! Entering the awards will place your work in front of a panel of 12 international and 12 national judges, which form some of the biggest names in hair globally. In 2017, this includes Mark Hayes and Edward Darley from Sassoon; Tabatha Coffey; editorial legend, Peter Gray; multiple UK Hairdresser of the Year award-winner, Angelo Seminara; Jayne Lewis-Orr from Hairdressing Journal International; Jorge Cancer from the education icons of X-Presion; Andreas Stavrou from the UK Fellowship; and Gerard Scarpaci from the US hair industry platform, HairBrained. We have brand new prizes for all category winners to help you get the most out of your win… These include sponsorship of your post-win PR campaign so you can promote your success to future clients! We will also offer winners a chance to participate on the Hair Expo Stages in 2018, plus we will promote ALL finalists via our 30,000+ industry database and on our social media channels. And for all you regional superstars: could you be shining in Hair Expo’s new state categories? Being selected as a finalist or winning a Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Expo Award will be one of the highlights of your career and propel you to yet another level of opportunities – just ask our previous winners and finalists. Our 2016 SA/TAS Hairdresser of the Year award-winner, Kristy Hodgson, has these words of wisdom for potential entrants: “Take the plunge. It's not even about winning – it’s about producing a collection that represents you and that you are proud to share… once you start, it's amazing to realise and reflect on just how much you actually do in a year; putting on paper your growth over the past 12 months and what you intend to do next really makes you stop and think.” If you’re entering a creative category, you’ll know that you will need to submit a photographic collection before your written entry. The good news for 2017 is that you now have the option to submit images from a photo shoot also used for other purposes*, meaning that you don’t have to devote extra resources to multiple shoots. If you don’t know where to start, take the advice of our People’s Choice Award winner from 2016, Chinney Yeap, who says: “mood boards are essential. My motto: ‘Be all you can be!'” Once you’ve made it to the finalist stage, you’ll complete a questionnaire – this is where it’s time to look at your successes from the year; what are you proud of? What is the essence of your creative vision? Were there any challenges you fought hard to overcome? Putting pen to paper is a great time to reflect on what makes you tick, your career milestones, and what you love about being a hairdresser. If you find the written entry daunting, enlist a friend to help you brainstorm – it’s often easier to feel confident about your ability when someone else is on hand to reinforce how amazing you are! With an unmatched heritage of more than 30 years of supporting the industry, the Hair Expo Awards consistently highlight the best-of-the-best professionals from Australia and New Zealand and sets the bar for the industry.

Resilience in an organisation works to mitigate against these issues. Fortunately resilience is proven to be a learned quality that can be taught,” said Stuart Taylor CEO of Springfox.   DATA HIGHLIGHTS   We are changing over time   Considerable changes occurred in our workforce from 2010 to 2016 with peoples’ levels of relaxation, fitness, intensity and impulse control declining over the six-year period. This means people are not relaxing and recovering as well as they once were. In fact, data shows a 30% reduction in our daily practice of relaxation, which is the foundation for physical, emotional and cognitive resilience. Conversely, factors including one’s connection, health awareness, biological insight, engagement and values alignment improved over time.    Age matters   The data shows that resilience tends to increase with age, especially in the train mind category, led by focus and decisiveness. Significant life events we experience as we get older impact our levels of resilience and our ability to adapt, change, and grow. Women show most improvement during their younger and older years, whilst men between the ages of 31-50 display the highest increase in resilience.   Gender counts   The report illustrates that gender plays a role in one’s resilience levels and that men and women have different needs and solutions. Overall, male resilience ratios (2.31:1) are higher than female ratios (2.11:1) and men improve more with training. Females tend to score poorly in distress, vulnerability and withdrawn categories. Having said this, women are more engaged and positive, eat better, and score higher on EQ factors (positivity, connection, empathy, insight).   The CEO must lead - leadership must shape, promote and model resilience   The data reveals that a stress based culture typically stems from the top at the c-suite level. The most resilient organisations are those that have a leadership team that takes a systematic   and active approach to participating in and modelling resilience. When leadership fails to demonstrate resilience, this is reflected in the organisation at large resulting in an underperforming workforce.   “This highlights that it’s critical for leadership to commit themselves to practices that will lead their teams to be more resilient. Leaders drive culture, and culture drives performance,” said Mr Taylor.     Resilience is not innate; it’s learnt – resilience training delivers   With intervention, every category and factor of resilience improves, with data showing a clear increase in resilience ratios after resilience programmes. The average improvement is 25%, with some subjects even doubling their level of resilience.   Global diversity   Resilience is globally relevant and locally distinct. While there is little difference in resilience starting points between regions, responses to resilience interventions do vary by region. The Americas have the greatest increase in resilience ratio after resilience programmes, whilst South East Asia has the lowest.   Download the full report here: http://bit.ly/2ml8Gok   -ENDS-     About the Resilience Delivers - Global Resilience Diagnostic Report 2016/2017   The Global Resilience Diagnostic Report 2016/2017 is an analysis of 26,099 Resilience Diagnostic Assessments over six years. The Resilience Diagnostic is a self-assessment tool that assesses the resilience of individuals, teams and organisations. The diagnostic measures five asset categories (resilience strengths) and six liability categories (resilience vulnerabilities). Each category is built from an average of five questions exploring people’s actions and experiences.   About Springfox   Springfox is the Australian leader in resilience. Founded in 2002 under the name of The Resilience Institute in Australia, Springfox provides evidence-based resilience programmes to individuals and organisations. The Learning Labs are delivered in five different languages on all continents. Drawing from modern preventative medicine, positive psychology, neuroscience, emotional intelligence and cognitive behaviour therapy, the training is proven to improve individuals and organisations’ resilience by an average of 25%.

According to the latest results of WorldVentures Australian Membership Survey for 2016, Cairns trumps other Australian and international locations as the global holiday destination of choice for Australian travellers(1) and proves extremely popular among global travel club members.   The survey revealed that the sunshine state is attracting a majority of Australian DreamTrips travellers, with Hamilton Island and the Gold Coast also listed in the top five preferred holiday locations.   These three Australian destinations bumped popular international holiday hubs such as Bali into fourth position for desired DreamTrips by Australian members.   "This indicates the growing appeal of 'staycations' for Australian travellers as they look to explore home soil," said Anthony Fitzgerald, General Manager, Asia Pacific, WorldVentures.   “Cairns hits the spot for our adventurous DreamTrippers, with its white-sand beaches, rainforests and coral reefs, so it is no wonder it continues to be the number one destination for Australian DreamTrips members. As a company, WorldVentures hopes to further strengthen our relationships with Cairns tourist operations into the future to continue fulfilling dreams of those wishing to explore the tropical city of Cairns,” he added.   To cater for growing interest in DreamTrips holidays by Australian members, WorldVentures opened their first Australian office in Homebush, Sydney in late 2016.   “As our membership grows, we continue to see thriving interest in Cairns from both our local and global membership base,” said Mr Fitzgerald. "We have over 500,000 members worldwide and we are on track to deliver some 250 DreamTrips coming in to Australia this year alone. This will represent vacations for thousands of members right here in Australia. After all, there is no place like home!"    The Cairns DreamTrips curated holiday package is an attractive offering for travellers. The Cairns DreamTrips includes a full-day cruise to Michaelmas Cay through the Great Barrier Reef, snorkelling and ecological presentations conducted by Marine biologists. Accommodation is at the luxurious Hotel Pullman Cairns International, in its noteworthy location in the heart of the Cairns central business district which provides easy access to the Great Barrier Reef and other famous attractions. WorldVentures' success can be attributed to the team's ability to offer desirable itineraries that benefit the industry and its members alike.   Out of the global database of DreamTrips members travelling to Australian destinations, 25% were domestic travellers with the remaining 75% foreigners.   Last year saw 8.1 million international arrivals into Australia, spending $38.8 billion AUD, with each international traveller contributing an estimated $4,790 to the industry(1).   "With both international and domestic travellers flocking to Cairns, it is certainly still one of the most important hubs for Australia’s tourism industry, and WorldVentures through our DreamTrips holidays is pleased to be able to play a role in the tropical city’s continued success," Mr Fitzgerald commented.  About WorldVentures WorldVentures is an award-winning international lifestyle and travel membership company based in Texas, United States. Founded in 2005, WorldVentures sells memberships with perks to a diverse set of lifestyle products such as unique customized vacations known as DreamTrips, value-added dining experiences and deals at exquisite hotels at members’ only prices.

Aspen Medical was one of the only organisations in the world to be contracted by four separate countries to deliver their Ebola response.  The company managed the Australian and New Zealand Governments’ Ebola Treatment Centre in Sierra Leone from mid-December 2014 until the end of April 2015.  Aspen Medical continued to play a crucial role in Sierra Leone where it managed the Kerry Town Treatment Unit on behalf of the UK Government as well as providing support to the laboratory run by Public Health England until the end of November 2015.  The company also managed four Ebola Treatment Units in Liberia on behalf of the US Government.  In all, more than 250 non-African health professional deployed to West Africa with Aspen Medical and were supported by over 800 local staff across the three projects. In November 2016, Aspen Medical won the International Project Management Association gold medal in the Overseas Humanitarian Aid category for its Ebola Response work in West Africa.   The West African Ebola Outbreak of 2013 – 2016 which began in Guinea resulted in 28,616 infections resulting in 11,310 deaths across the region.
