4. Start thinking about the entry point session options
Details about each of the entry point session options are posted on the Shifting Thinking Workshop page. Think about which sessions interest you the most – Yes we know, it’s so hard to choose, they are all so good! You won’t have to decide exactly which sessions you are going to until Thursday morning, when you meet with your learning group.
5. Social interlude and dinner options on Thursday night
On Thursday evening there will be a chance to get together in a relaxed environment to chat and mingle with Workshop facilitators and participants. For catering purposes, we’ll check with you at registration on Thursday morning to confirm whether you will be attending. The event starts DOWNSTAIRS from the Workshop at the Jimmy Bar. Nibbles will be provided and a cash bar where you can purchase a full range of hot and cold drinks.
We will provide a list and map of nearby restaurants and we encourage you to make some new friends at the Workshop and take them with you as you explore Wellington’s excellent food offerings.
6. Spread the word to peers and colleagues
If you have peers and colleagues who may be interested in attending the Shifting Thinking Workshop, there are still places available – but registrations close in one week. Spread the word so they don’t miss out.
