Day 3 – 17 July

Well the third day represents the closing day for the 7th ICEI event, until the next ICEI event in Palermo, Sicily, Italy !!

The focus on this last day is the link between EI and Health and Wellness and the keynote address will be delivered by Joseph Ciarrochi, from Institute for Positive Psychology, Australian Catholic University, Melbourne. His keynote address is entitled “Application of EI skills required to begin to sustain health behaviour”.

Several very interesting workshops will then be offered to Congress delegates focusing on educational, personal exploration and psychological application of EI. Don’t want to attend a workshop then attend instead the paper presentations which cover health and applied use of EI.

The last session (apart from a welcome to Palermo), will be a unique opportunity to explore through short presentations by Lyn Mahboub and Kerry Hawkins, the area of EI and Lived Experience. This will involve a facilitated panel of keynote speakers focusing on the importance of EI and one’s own/others life experiences.

Day Two – 16 July – what to expect

Well real count down is on less than two weeks out from the pre congress workshops and the commencement of the 7th ICEI !!!….. Keynotes and speakers locked in, catering arranged, IT being prepared (!), last minute marketing proceeding, optimism rising and pessimism being controlled ! In this Blog/information I will briefly outline second and third day’s events.

The second day will commence with Carolyn MacCann, from School of Psychology, University Sydney present on theme “Emotional Intelligence from Individual and Organizational perspectives”. We when then move to morning tea punctuated with an interactive poster session held between 10.15-10.45…. come along and share with the posters!

We progress after morning tea to workshops/symposium/paper sessions…… much to choose from and become challenged and hopefully stimulated. The sessions cover various aspects fitting EI into the individual and organisational aspects of life. Useful to either look at the various research and empirical basis of EI (Symposium), or specific workshop experiential experiences or listing to how EI can fit the organizational setting (Papers)

We then move to lunch and the possibility of meeting the expert over lunch….. small numbers so you need to be quick to sign up and register…

Well we then move to the second day afternoon session….; It starts off with Neal Ashkanasy, from Management School, Queensland University speaking to the Congress theme of “Emotional Intelligence in the Professions”. We then move to afternoon tea and a series of interactive poster sessions.

Some History Facts

The human history of Western Australia commenced between 40,000 and 60,000 years ago with the arrival of Indigenous Australians on the northwest coast. The first inhabitants expanded the range of their settlement to the east and south of the continent. The first recorded European contact was in 1616, when Dutch explorer Dirk Hartog landed on the west coast, having been blown off course while en-route to Batavia, nowadays called Jakarta.

Although many expeditions visited the coast during the next 200 years, there was no lasting attempt at establishment of a permanent settlement until December 1826 when an expedition on behalf of the New South Wales colonial government, led by Major Edmund Lockyer,[1] landed at King George Sound. On 21 January 1827 Lockyer formally took possession of the western third of the continent of Australia for the British Crown. This was followed by the establishment of the Swan River Colony in 1829, including the site of the present-day capital, Perth. The harsh conditions faced by the settlers resulted in population growth being minimal until the discovery of gold in the 1880s. Since the gold rush, the population of the state has risen steadily, with substantial growth in the period since World War II.

The Port of #Fremantle is integral to Immigration history. Situated at the mouth of the Swan River, it is the maritime gateway to Western Australia. Aboriginal people call this place ‘Manjaree’, meaning ‘gathering place’, where locals and visitors engaged in trade and cultural exchange before Europeans arrived. It has continued to be a place of meetings greetings and farewells.
