The mid-November Alumni Retreat was designed to provide an opportunity for our Alumni to “sharpen the saw”; to reconnect with each other and to engage with new ideas and conversations that shape New Zealand today within the context of our 2016 them of Mindful Leadership.
Little did anyone know that a Banana and a Shark would welcome us and lead us into a fulfilling weekend! A huge thank you to Alumni Ryan Crawford and Grant Palmer for stepping up at the last moment to MC the retreat when our planned MC fell ill.
34 alumni from 9 of the 11 years of Alumni gathered together in Wellington at Toi Whakaari and journeyed together throughout the weekend. It didn’t take long for the bonds to form as if everyone had been from the same Programme year. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and you can gain some insights as to what was covered through reflections from Mark Dunlop, Cheryl Bowie and Minnie Baragwanath.
