On the 2nd August, Victoria was declared a state of disaster and Stage 4 restrictions were put into place immediately.

This has rocked many leaders as the latest shutdown could be the end for many small businesses, individuals could face a second wave of redundancies which will increase the financial pressure on families, and parents are returning to the home school juggle. Not to mention a whole lot of uncertainty as we come to terms with what this all means.

At Future of Leadership we can’t provide the clear answers, we can’t tell you when this is going to end, and we can’t look into our mirror ball and say what the new normal will look like. But we can do our best to help. We can stand strong with our Victorian friends. We can bring hope, joy and inspiration to those that are doing it tough and will struggle to cope over the coming weeks.

Lift Victoria Up is a community initiative from Future of Leadership that will provide Victorian residents with online access to its Member Program and the Run with Victoria Fitness Challenge FREE for the duration of lockdown. This support package has been put together to provide professional development, inspiration, and an escape from the day to day through events, fitness challenges and content.
