So Much More Than Corporate Chat with Greencross Leaders, Joel Nugawela and Dr Rebecca Goldstein

The PositiVETy Podcast

#20 - This week's special guests are two shining lights of our industry, both of whom have very different origin stories but share one commonality - a solution-driven approach to the sustainability of our veterinary profession. Joel Nugawela and Rebecca Goldstein both started their veterinary journey together, as vet students at Murdoch University. Towards the end of his degree however, Joel came to the realisation that clinical veterinary practice was not for him, and made the difficult decision to leave vet school. Fast-forward almost a decade, add an actuarial degree and time spent doing all kinds of business-y things at Price Waterhouse and Cooper,  he returns to our profession as the General Manager of Transformation and Operations Excellence for Greencross. Rebecca's career has been a little more traditional yet no less varied, involving working abroad, a snowboarding season in the Canadian snowfields and the impressive achievement of passing the ANZCVS membership exam in small animal surgery.  Like so many of us though, there came a point in her career where she started to look for something more; more responsibility, more opportunity for professional development and more of a challenge. Which is why she took the leap of faith and became Greencross's Regional Clinical Director for Western Australia. The corporatisation of veterinary practice is a topic that divides our community, but in this episode, Joel and Rebecca share with us all the positive aspects to corporate practice and how it may very well be one solution that can significantly contribute to the future-proofing of our veterinary profession . From community engagement and client education to implementing strategies to promote the mental wealth of their team members, Greencross really is paving the way for sustainability and career longevity. FIND OUT MORE ABOUT A CAREER WITH GREENCROSS: https://www.greencrossvets.com.au/careers/PLATINUM CPD - REACH YOUR PLATINUM POTENTIAL: https://platinumcpd.com/memberships/FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM: @platinum_cpd

Would you like to receive a daily, random quote by email from my Little Box of Quotes?https://constantine.name/lboqA long long time ago I began collecting inspirational quotes and aphorisms. I kept them on the first version of my web site, where they were displayed randomly. But as time went on, I realized I wanted them where I would see them. Eventually I copied the fledgeling collection onto 3×5 cards and put them in a small box. As I find new ones, I add cards. Today, there are nearly 1,000 quotes and the collection continues to grow.My mission is creating better conversations to spread understanding and compassion. This podcast is a small part of what I do. Drop by https://constantine.name for my weekly email, podcasts, writing and more.

Rebecca Goldstein: the atheist with a soul


Note: this interview was broadcast on WGBH, Boston’s NPR station for news and culture! Rebecca Goldstein’s latest work, called 36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction, is perhaps best described as a hybrid. It is indeed a novel, with its share of psychology, mathematics and academic politics, but it concludes with an appendix outlining these 36 arguments, as well as their rebuttals, in the language not of fiction, but of philosophy. So, as in many of Goldstein’s earlier novels, this one manages to fold ideas into art. ThoughtCast spoke with Rebecca in her home in the Leather District, in downtown Boston. Click here (28 minutes) to listen. Click here (90 minutes) to listen to a discussion with Rebecca Goldstein and Steven Pinker, sponsored by PEN New England.  It’s titled Mind-Body Problems: A Conversation About Science, Fiction and God, and focuses mainly on Rebecca’s latest novel. Rebecca Goldstein received her doctorate in philosophy from Princeton, and went on to teach philosophy before trying her pen at fiction. Her first novel, The Mind-Body Problem, was a critical success, and she went on to write 5 other novels, including Properties of Light, Mazel, and The Dark Sister. She has also written non-fiction studies of the mathematician Kurt Gödel, and the philosopher Baruch Spinoza. In addition to being Rebecca’s husband, Steven Pinker is Harvard College Professor and Johnstone Family Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, and one of the world’s leading authorities on language and the mind. He’s written seven books (so far) including The Blank Slate, How the Mind Works and The Stuff of Thought. And finally, to listen to this ThoughtCast interview on the WGBH Forum Network, click here!

Philosophy For Our Times

Today we bring you the first episode of Beyond Us, an all-new series made in association with Essentia Foundation. Looking for a link we mentioned? It's here: https://linktr.ee/philosophyforourtimesFew things are more valued by 21st century humans than knowledge. But how is it acquired? Cognitive psychology tells us that we leverage a variety of functions which can be roughly divided into two classes: the 'mental' and the 'feeling' faculties. Our culture increasingly champions knowledge based on reason and disparages feelings and intuitions. But what might we have lost (as well as gained), from this epistemic hierarchy, and how should knowledge be made and managed to produce the best possible outcomes?Series hosts Bernardo Kastrup and Fred Matser discuss the fascinating topic of knowledge with Canadian philosopher and champion of the enlightenment project, Rebecca Goldstein.In association with Essentia Foundation.Read Beyond Us: www.bit.ly/38r7qXx.Watch Beyond Me: www.bit.ly/3nAPSwt.There are thousands of big ideas to discover at IAI.tv – videos, articles, and courses waiting for you to explore.
