As 2022 draws to a close it’s time to reflect on the year and the lessons we have learnt.

In 2022 we saw the return of live events and our speakers return to their natural habitat, the stage!

We saw the workforce return to the office and businesses learn to navigate hybrid workplaces.

We learnt that mental health is an important topic with overwhelm, stress and burnout affecting many.

We saw the effects of the ‘great resignation’ and a shift in people’s priorities.

We saw Dylan Alcott AO be awarded Australian of the Year and advocate for inclusivity for disability.

We elected a new Prime Minister and put climate at the top of the agenda, as we helplessly watched floods devastate QLD, NSW, VIC and TAS.

We saw the threat of cyber security breaches, whilst the tech experts taught us the importance of data security and how we can embrace technology.

We boarded airplanes and opened borders. We travelled freely and broadly, for the first time in years, and we welcomed International Talent back onto Australian soil.

We watched Aussie Ash Barty win the Australian Open, then retire soon after at the top of her game.

We witnessed Buddy Franklin kick his 1000th AFL goal.

We lost a Queen, and gained a King.

And we were heartbroken hearing the passing of some of our greats, such as Shane Warne, Archie Roach, Olivia Newton-John and Uncle Jack Charles.

. . .

What lessons, challenges or milestones did you face this year?
What are you looking forward to for 2023?
