Hugh van Cuylenburg brings The Resilience Project back to Newcastle

After selling out the Civic Theatre on his last visit to Newcastle, The Resilience Project’s founder and best-selling author Hugh van Cuylenburg is headed back to town.

The aim of The Resilience Project is to teach positive mental health strategies to help people become happier.

After living and volunteering in the far north of India, where there is no running water, electricity or beds, Hugh was blown away by how happy people were.

In fact, Hugh noticed that the people he met were happier than we were in the west despite the fact they had very little to call their own.

Hugh has worked with elite sports teams, including Australian cricket, netball, soccer, NRL and AFL teams, and has delivered talks to over a thousand schools and workplaces.

During his public talks, Hugh tries to give everyone a chance to learn positive mental health strategies which help us become happier and more resilient. He teaches simple and practical evidence-based mental health strategies to build resilience and happiness.

Through engaging storytelling, and unpacking the research into simple tips, audiences leave feeling empowered and on a mission to improve their wellbeing.

The messages behind The Resilience Project’s work have become ever more powerful over the past twelve months due to the uncertainty created during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Public Talks see Hugh walking the audience through his journey as well as telling stories of the incredible people who have inspired him and The Resilience Project to spread happiness.

You can join Hugh at the Civic Theatre Newcastle on Friday, 3 June 2022. Head to the Civic Theatre website for tickets and more information.
