When the world as we knew it stopped with the Covid-19 pandemic, we were divided: all live events were obviously cancelled, and yet this was a time when now more than ever, our speakers’ insights and expertise would be most needed. It was with this in mind that our weekly Breakfast Bites series was born to provide our clients with as much value as we could during lockdown.

 

These complimentary half-hour ‘mini keynote’ episodes have gone from strength to strength. Originally created for ICMI’s clients, Breakfast Bites has gone on to create its own following and is now the highlight of many people’s week. Each Wednesday at 9am AEDT, two speakers and a host from our vast and varied talent pool draw on their lives and experiences to discuss the current climate, providing tangible insights and advice moving forward. Due to its success, Breakfast Bites is now available on-demand, meaning you can return to the series again and again and again.

But Anna’s life since Rio has not been easy, as she struggled to come to terms with retirement, a divorce, the death of her much loved coach Gary West, and the realisation that, for all her greatness, the world of elite cycling was carrying on without her. In her new book, Anna Meares: Now, Anna describes the impact all this loss had on her, as she found herself feeling despondent and alone, and questioning if all she’d achieved was truly worth it. 

‘There were times when going to sleep was the hardest part of my entire day,’ she writes. ‘I just wanted to stay asleep, if I ever got there.’

Happily, Anna was able to turn her life around. She is in a new relationship and recently gave birth to a daughter, Evelyn. In this exclusive extract, she recalls the depths of her despair after she retired and when things started to improve …
