By the end of the day, we were starting to get the hang of our newly learned skills in break out rooms.
While Zoom certainly has its limitations, this mode of gathering allowed us to be joined by alumni from as far as Singapore, Karratha and Albany. We enjoyed hearing interviews with a couple of graduates, along with catching up with peers in small groups (albeit while we were meant to be on task!). I’m looking forward to part 2, coming up at the end of May: delegation.
