Victory Offices is very excited to be welcoming back wellness expert Michael Bartura for World Gratitude Day (September 21st).

In this 60 minute session, Michael Bartura will provide an inspiring event relevant to the occasion through an online presentation and a Q&A session.

He will explore how Gratefulness is ‘made’

  • What is gratitude? How does it show up in our lives and how does it add value and pleasure.
  • Its connection to a mindfulness practice – day to day – and how you can create a gratitude practice.
  • Positive neuroplasticity – The science behind building trust, kindness, gratitude.


We understand that during COVID dressing for the day no longer applies, but, with that being said, we would love to see your face during this online event as breakout rooms will be utilised for individual reflection and work.


  • Understand the role and sequence of positive emotions.
  • Insight into how the mind work and how our thoughts are the building blocks of our experience (really, our reality) – so in the context of appreciating life, how the practice of gratitude makes for a happier daily experience.
  • How to apply this understanding on a daily basis.
