This event will be a personal look at creating a stress-free Christmas and 2021.

Whichever way you spin it, Christmas and the New Year is a pricey time of year, and this is especially relevant considering the impact of COVID-19 on the Australian economy and our mental health.

This is exactly why Victory Offices is thrilled to be hosting a virtual panel discussion on the topic. Three experts will guide business owners through how they can achieve their best this Christmas and well into the new year from a mental wellbeing and a financial perspective.

As business owners we are always taking care of everyone else, so time to check in with yourself and see how you are going.


  • 5-minute introduction on the speaker and topic
  • A 40-45-minute moderated discussion
  • 5-minutes of questions from the attendees
