Steve: A Documentary to Save Men from Suicide

Steve: A Documentary to Save Men from Suicide

Brighton on the Inside presents: Brighton & Hove screening of “Steve” and panel talk.

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. 12 men a day. 1 every 2 hours.

One of those men was Steve Yates. But Steve was more than a number. He was a father, a son, a brother, and a friend. Director Ben Akers’ childhood best friend.

In this 90 minute Documentary Ben goes on a mission to look at why suicide is happening. And what men can do to help themselves.

He begins by talking to Steve’s family, health professionals and ordinary men who are suffering - often in silence.

From there he explores the solutions with people who are using their experiences to create positive change.

In this confronting and raw film, the film-makers want to help men (and their families) understand that it’s ok to not be ok, and discuss the ways we can all help ourselves to be mentally fit.

Director: Ben Akers.

Producers: Claire Wilkinson, Neil Harrison.

Editor: Sam Wilkie.

Duration 90 minutes.

Please note: This film is adult themed with talk of death and suicide.

PLATF9RM Presents: Make Work Wonderful

At PLATF9RM, we know that one of the best ways we can make work wonderful is to help you feel great about yourself and your future. To this end, we’re hosting our second conference of the year this September – and this time it’s all about striking the right balance between leading a fulfilling life and nurturing a successful career. We say yes to 365 happier days a year, and after this full day of presentations and workshops we’re sure you will too.

It’s been a struggle to contain our excitement over our first keynote speaker of the day. We’re delighted to announce that Bruce Daisley, VP of Twitter and author of The Sunday Times Business bestseller, The Joy of Work: 30 Ways to Fix Your Work Culture and Fall in Love with Your Job Again, will be sharing his insights on happiness at work gleaned from interviews with psychologists, neuroscientists and workplace experts across the globe. As well as hearing Bruce speak live, you’ll also receive a signed copy of his book and learn more about his hit podcast Eat, Sleep, Work, Repeat.

We’re looking forward to releasing the full list of speakers and workshops at the beginning of August. In the meantime you can purchase your ticket here, which includes a delicious lunch as well as your signed copy of The Joy of Work: 30 Ways to Fix Your Work Culture and Fall in Love with Your Job Again.

PLATF9RM Learns: Build a Bulletproof Business Proposal

It’s a rainy afternoon, you’re low on energy… but then a brief lands in your inbox, and it lights you up. It’s the perfect opportunity for you – but you know the pitch competition will be fierce. Where do you start on your winning proposal?

Solution Smuggler Tim Healey is giving a one-off masterclass on creating the proposal document that will bag you your next business opportunity. It’ll convince your client that you’ve understood their challenge. It’ll show that you offer the best experience, skillset and approach to tackling it. It’ll be simple, have a great flow and be easy for your client to sell you into their C-suite, stakeholders or internal team; and best of all, with a few tweaks you’ll be able to use it again and again!

Before he began mentoring startups and SMEs, Tim worked as a creative director for leading global ad agencies, delivering campaigns for brands from BMW to M&S. He’s worked on several projects with Google Creative Labs, been in digital think tanks for YouTube, and back in 2016, worked closely with our founder Seb Royle helping to set up PLATF9RM. Places are set to fly out for this masterclass, so make sure you sign up quick!

The best ideas have a great story behind them.

If you're a social entrepreneur or a purposeful freelancer, you probably have all the material you need for a great story. If you get it right, it can power your brand and take your business far.

  • help others to make their stories stick

  • take away inspiration, new ideas and next steps for getting your story out there

Numbers are strictly limited to 15 participants.

This workshop is presented in partnership with The Good Business Club, which helps change-makers start up, run and grow their ‘Business for Good’.

Bite-sized Learning: Getting your price right

Setting the right price for what you sell is the single biggest action you can take to make your business more successful. And 90% of small businesses get this wrong.

Hosted by Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce and facilitated by Julia Chanteray, The Joy of Business: In two hours you’ll cover how to get to your sweetspot price – the one where you’ll have plenty of clients, who are happy to buy at a price which makes you a good profit. And we'll talk about how pricing and marketing are linked, so you can get going with the marketing that will enable you to charge the right kind of money.

The workshop will be fun, non-technical, and you’ll immediately be able to put this into action. It also includes a copy of Julia Chanteray’s book, Sweetspot Pricing.

This workshop is aimed at small businesses who want to grow—especially useful for creatives, consultants, trainers and services businesses. Not ideal for businesses with more than 30 employees or who sell physical products.

For this month’s PLATF9RM Learns, Jason Baker, owner of local performance marketing agency Citrus Ornge, will present the case for keeping an open mind when recruiting. Jason recovered from addiction through a 12-step recovery program 4 years ago, and started his own business with an important social mission: to help people in the same position back onto their feet.

Come along and find out how recruiting people in recovery from addiction can make a difference – not just to their lives, but to your business too.

PLATF9RM Presents: The Circular Economy

Are you ready to face the future smiling? This month we're exploring an ecosystem approach that we can all get on board with, for the sake of our communities and our planet. In June, PLATF9RM will be exploring the circular economy. We’ve invited a selection of inspiring speakers to demonstrate the ecosystem approach that will facilitate a true circular economy while meeting the economic needs of our society – all within the limits of our planet. The climate is shifting, both socially and geologically. As individuals and communities, it's our responsibility to adapt our methods and practices. Come and join the conversation.

Speakers include:

Sally May

Sally is a coach and consultant with a passion for the circular economy. As a business and leadership coach, she helps people connect with the important stuff, make plans, eliminate the self-sabotage and collaborate more effectively with those around them. She also offers consulting services (communications, leadership development), building on the experience she gained working in international teams with Fortune 500 companies at Accenture for 18 years in France, Germany and the UK. She has recently teamed up with a local trainer to provide a series of productivity workshops and is about to launch one called “Saying No”! Sally sees the Circular Economy as a great way to get people to think differently and get creative in business and politics, and is on the delivery team of Circular Brighton & Hove to do just that.

Peter Desmond

Peter is a Chartered Accountant and MBA graduate bringing a broad commercial perspective to his work on the circular economy. Using his experience from 40 years as a strategic advisor, coach, trainer and senior finance executive, he now supports SMEs and corporates in the UK and Africa in getting started on their circular economy journeys. He is a Circular Economy Club Mentor a co-founder of Circular Brighton & Hove which organises monthly meetings to help accelerate the transition towards Brighton & Hove becoming a circular city. He is also a Strategic Advisor with Rethink Solutions which helps businesses make sense of circular thinking. Peter has an MA (Distinction) in Globalisation, Business and Development from the Institute of Development Studies at Sussex University. His dissertation: “Towards a circular economy in South Africa – what are the constraints to recycling mobile phones?” enabled him to uncover the ways that circular approaches benefit developing economies. Following his graduation in 2016, he returned to South Africa to co-found and chair the African Circular Economy Network. This aims to build a restorative African economy that creates well-being and prosperity for its people whilst regenerating environmental resources. He has contributed a chapter on Africa to the recently published book “The Circular Economy and the Global South”.

Harriet Dean Orange

Harriet is an NHS Ambassador for Sustainability in Healthcare and has transferred her skills in sustainability into the Harriet’s of Hove shop that she co-owns with partner Mhiran. The shop is a food, toiletries and kitchen products refills store and the only completely plastic free packaging shop in Hove. It is a first time business venture for them together and they truly hope that Harriet’s of Hove can grow to be more than just a refill store for the community. In time, they hope to see their business flourish and become an environmental hub of interest and will be using the space for classes and groups in the evening. The overall goal is to make sustainable living accessible for all.
