On Monday, The Lord Mayor of Melbourne Sally Capp will be in conversation with The Centre for Optimism. 

Sally is what we would call a realistic and infectiously optimistic leader

Being a Mayor in a city under curfew under what's called "stage 4 lockdown" and in a declared "state of disaster", is not easy.

Monday lunchtime in Melbourne, Sally is going to join us to talk about her personal source of optimism and what makes her optimistic for Melbourne through the pandemic and beyond.

As you know, optimism isn't positive thinking or a silver lining in every dark cloud.  Optimism is a belief that "good things will happen and things will work out in the end."  To which can be added, if it hasn't worked out, it's not the end."

Back in May, Sally wrote, "The uncertainty of this pandemic makes it difficult to predict the outlook for our economy. These are hard times but I have faith in the pride, ingenuity, determination and agility of Melburnians. Through our combined efforts I’m optimistic we will rebuild a stronger, more prosperous city for all."

Joining our COO Victor Perton on the panel for the opening questions will be:

  • Janine Kirk AM, Chair of the Phoenix Trust; Former Head of The Princes's Charities in Australia; and, former Head of the Committee for Melbourne.
  • Robert Masters, Chair, The Centre for Optimism.
