What does 2021 hold?


We all know that predicting the future is difficult, and the events of the last year has reinforced this even more. Despite this, we still have to make plans for the future and that's what we have been thinking about, lately.

It would be easy to say that because we are doing relatively well here in Australia that we can go back to how we ran things in 2019, in 2021. We aren't going to rush things though, so here's where the current thinking from me is.

We need the community's support

If you have been to and enjoyed LAST/1st and Spark the Change in the past, or one of the 2020 LAST Anywhere or Clubhouse sessions, we really need your support in the next few months…particularly if you are able to become a Full Member.

Please consider joining as a Full Member, and just as importantly please get involved. The enthusiasm and involvement to make the LAST Club something more than just a series of webinars, is really important and it also matches the ethos of all of the past Tabar events and will boost us during the transition back to in-person.

In return, we are going to organise the most engaging and valuable program of online and in-person events that we can in 2021. You can join as a Full Member for either a very affordable up-front fee, or you can spread the payment for the rest of 2021. 

In addition, joining now as a Full Member means that a portion of your membership can be used to offset the cost of coming to an in-person Conference later in 2021.

2021 Plans

The video above is a supercut of what I talk about below. This playlist divides the video into 3 smaller chunks,

1. LAST Club online 2021

Since we started with 100% online sessions in March 2020, we have run over 50 sessions in a variety of formats. There have been presenters from our community of talented practitioners and noted Australians such as Elise Bialylew (Mindful in May), Hugh Mackay AONatasha Anderson (Film-maker and anti-family violence activist).

We have also had appearances from names like Diana Larsen, Barry O'Reilly, John Cutler, Kazuyoshi Hisano, Norman Bodek, Kerri Rusnak, Chuen Chuen Yeo, Dr Zach Mercurio, Professor Michael Steger, Jeff Patton and Sandy Mamoli from overseas.

The sessions have covered everything from Meaning, Purpose and Positive Psychology to DevOps and Legacy Code, via agile coaching and enterprise agility.

For 2021, we are continuing the online member's club aspect of LAST. 

2. In-person events

There are a few aspects to this.

  1. We have started small, with an Unconference in March with limited capacity, and another in May. Priority registration will be given to Full Members of the Clubhouse. We may organise more, adjusting capacity to both demand and the current conditions
  2. We have booked a 1 day, in-person mini- event on Friday 23 July 3 September, at the Abbotsford Convent in Melbourne.
  3. On 5 November, we hope that we'll be able to have something that is more like LAST Conference Melbourne of the past. We have booked in the Convent for an expanded capacity event
  4. We are talking with the organisers in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra, about what they might do in 2021.

PS - To mitigate capacity restrictions in 2021, become a FULL MEMBER to get to the front of the queue.
