The pre-conference training was attended by more than 75 persons who actively participated in “Inspirit Innovation Circles” wonderfully facilitated by Budhita Kismadi who created Vibrant Facilitation…an inspiring session. The training was followed by a Welcome Reception for more than 100 delegates.
The conference over the next two days consisted of both plenary sessions and 16 concurrent workshops featuring leading advocates in their field for over 200 delegates. An innovative World Café was facilitated by Ted Smeaton provided an innovative opportunity for delegates to communicate.
The banquet staff were quite magnificent and significantly contributed to the success of the event. Nothing was too much trouble and they certainly delivered as did the Fairchild staff responsible for the AV. Likewise the lunches were very well catered for a variety of tastes and needs. The Official Reception on the first conference evening enabled the delegates to mingle, eat, drink and chat for over an hour, and subsequently continued in nearby Chinatown.
The venue is centrally located in the CBD, with parking immediately adjacent and of course Central Station is five minutes walk away. The accommodation was of a very high standard and was certainly value for $ and as a consequence nearly 300 room nights were booked. Mike Schrafft, Director.
