    As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and Australian cities undergo varying periods of lockdown, our personal and professional stress seems to increase with the daily infection numbers.
    Planning what to do next has so much uncertainty right now that individuals and organisations are seeing ‘future stress,' or stress associated with the our longer term opportunities and decision making, as increasingly on the rise.
    This event will explore the ‘current normal’ with Nigel Abello, ReachOut’s Youth Ambassador, as well as Eloise Taylor, a Year 11 student at Oxford Falls Grammar who recently applied to be an AirField engineer and civil engineer with ADFA, and Elisha London, ex CEO and Founder of United for Global Mental Health where we will unpick a range of issues across mental health, parenting, caring, mentoring and career progression.
    Requests for refunds will be honored up to 7 days prior to the event.
