Is there a trick to staying on an even keel in this business, or is it inevitable you’ll be a little off kilter most of the time?
Gaylene Preston, Jackie van Beek, Madeleine Sami, Roseanne Liang, Tim van Dammen and Tom Sainsbury ponder the subject of wellness in consideration of the long hours and relentless stress endured to birth a project.
