As we’ve either learned or have been reminded in 2020, the world is filled with uncertainty. Wouldn’t it be a good idea if more of us, and more of our institutions and ways of living embedded more resilience -  ways to withstand and even thrive in the midst of stressors and shocks? Has any of this been done before?

Well, here’s some good news – it has, at least in a few places. One of those places is Melbourne, Australia, one of the world’s most liveable cities and a city that has received positive press coverage for the way it has handled the Covid-19 pandemic. Our guest today has had something to do with that. He has been described as “the man helping to future-proof Melbourne”. Meet Toby Kent.

Toby was Melbourne’s Chief Resilience Officer, a position appointed under the Rockefeller Foundation’s Global Resilient Cities Initiative. In this role, Toby created and delivered Australia’s first urban resilience strategy, Resilient Melbourne, a collection of Melbourne’s 32 councils, State, private and non-profit organisations, And, as part of that strategy, Toby warned – back in 2015 – that a pandemic was among the 20 things that could threaten Melbourne.

So, we obviously get into that and talk about some of the lessons of the Covid-19 pandemic. We also get into a number of broader areas as well including the environment, climate change, mental health, anti-fragility, and community resilience. Toby has an extensive background in sustainability and resilience and I am sure that you will enjoy this conversation.

Our free course module “How to Set Up Any Decision for Success” from our upcoming course How to Make Decisions With Calm and Confidence

Oct 7, 2020

It has been a few weeks but we are back! Today's conversation is about purpose, loss, wellness and entrepreneurship. My guest is Chris Lampitt. Chris is a London-based entrepreneur who started his career and spent several years in the banking industry. That is, until an incident caused him to question his purpose and his physical and mental health. Since then, Chris dedicated himself to health and wellness and made a career out of this - even starting his own company called FIT20:20 last year. 

If you've listened to many of our previous episodes, you know that many of our past guests have emphasised the connection between resilience, uncertainty and wellbeing. This has been brought into sharp relief since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. Chris underscores this in this conversation.

On top of this, Chris has recently launched an initiative that combines his passion and background to help the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. The NHS of course been under a lot of strain because of Covid19. Chris shares this on the show as well.
