Who and what we are today is a reflection of our resolve in the past. When faced with challenges that seem like the end of the road, both individuals and organisations have to dig deep to find a new source of purposefulness and determination in order to survive.
The Resolve Podcast focuses on people, leaders, and organisations in Australia whose grit and ingenuity have helped them navigate pressures and challenges that would send many of us packing.
Our first series, Stop / Start Nation, looks at the ways that leaders, small businesses and sole traders from a range of industries have navigated the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
S1 E7: The Farmer Wants a Hand
In the last episode of Resolve for 2021, we speak to to sheep shearers, fruit farmers, and industry experts to unpack the issue of staff shortages in the agriculture industry during Covid.
S1 E6: Out of Office
Up there with LOL, WFH has become one of the most recognisable acronyms and sayings over the last two years with COVID-19 fundamentally changing our relationship with the office and with very few of us wanting to return to the pre pandemic status quo. So what does the future of work hold?
S1 E5: Not in Service
The Australian hospitality industry is desperate to open their doors and fill their venues with happy diners again, but many are facing a new challenge - they can’t find enough staff to serve them.
S1 E4: Tracing the Contact Tracers
The Victorian Government has announced radical changes to contact tracing as we emerge from lockdown, but was it ever working as intended? We speak to three business owners and managers from the hospitality industry in Melbourne and Regional Victoria about their experiences in being at Covid exposure sites - and find some concerning gaps in the process. We also talk to Tim Bull MLA about these cases and the confusion around the new contract tracing guidelines.
S1 E3: Schools on a Roadmap to Nowhere
Our schools have felt the impact of every change in restrictions, and in our most locked down states, Victoria and New South Wales, the road maps for returning to school have twisted and turned on an opaque combination of health advice and political whim. We talk to educators about the impact of this on the profession, and consider what this experience might mean for the future of teaching.
S1 E2: Performing to an Audience of None
We talk to Melbourne-based performers about their experience surviving the pandemic, navigating the perils of applying for government support, the future of live performance, and getting back on stage in a post lockdown world.
