Ep 47 — Innovative approaches to ending youth homelessness — The Huddle Show
May 14 2018 52 mins  
Did you know that over 44,000 young people are homeless on any given night in Australia? Homelessness massively impacts individuals themselves and society more broadly (including you and me. Lighthouse Foundation offers a really innovative and rather radical approach to supporting young people to help end youth homelessness. Special guests Simon Benjamin from Lighthouse Foundation and Nick Pertrucco from HCMC Group to talk about this, along with what it means to create services that aren’t one size fits all, why slowing things down and being responsive not reactive is so important and how human-centricity unlocks employees, not just folks who use the service. Plus lots more. There are some really valuable lessons you and I — as human-centric problem solvers — can glean from these two. Simon Benjamin is the CEO of Lighthouse Foundation. He has worked in the out-of-home residential care, mental health and disability sectors for over 13 years. He has a great deal of experience working with children, young people and their families from backgrounds of complex trauma and has worked in a number of therapeutic settings, including the Mulberry Bush School in the United Kingdom, a specialist therapeutic community and a recognised international leader in the field. Nick Petrucco leads a management consulting firm HCMC where Nic coaches leaders and their teams to constructively work together to lead meaningful change in modern complex organisations. HCMC is dedicated to affecting positive change in the lives of others, the communities we live in and in the world we share and also has a number of social enterprise projects.

Ep 43 — Mental health & corporate life — The Huddle Show
Jan 12 2018 71 mins  
Special guests, Nick and Bec Petrucco, discuss their very personal journey and experiences with mental health, corporate life and what it means to be a human. If you’ve ever felt like a fraud, like you’re running a race with an invisible broken leg and no one knows what’s really going on, or feel like there’s gotta be more to it than this, this show is for you. We talk very practically about what the experience of depression and anxiety is like, especially as a successful corporate leader, what it’s like to fight the struggle not the issue and how to turn that around, and how to move toward living an authentic, resilient and purposeful life. Nic leads a management consulting firm HCMC where Nic coaches leaders and their teams to constructively work together to lead meaningful change in modern complex organisations. HCMC is dedicated to affecting positive change in the lives of others, the communities we live in and in the world we share and also has a number of social enterprise projects. As a leader in HCMC, Bec has been instrumental in facilitating major fundraising events and contributing to all of our social projects in Africa, Afghanistan, Cambodia India and Australia. Bec also has a background in nursing and has had leadership roles in Intensive Care and High Dependency units. Nick and Bec are parents of three.
