MAKING A DIFFERENCE
IN A PLACE. FOR A PURPOSE
A survey sent after the recent biennial Forum was completed by 10 people (that’s 15% of attenders) and provided some valuable feedback for the next Forum. The hosting was scored very highly – close to perfect! The speakers were nearly all rated in the good-excellent range, the workshops more various: from fair to excellent. The business sessions were less appreciated and the panel session only ‘fair’ – and, as the Panel compere, I would agree!
Comments were positive: “family atmosphere”, “really good experience”, “good to know we are not alone”, and “brilliant hosts”, were matched with “deliberation on election a waste of time” and “the Partners have no idea!”
For the future, we have noted that small group discussion after the speakers would be appreciated; the ‘self-help’ workshop should happen again – asking what CVs want, identifying the issues and opportunities…
Two anonymous ‘haiku’s were submitted:
I am glad I came Friendly occasion
Hearing and meeting new people Good stories to think on
Feelings of welcome And take home after
If the next Forum is in the Lower or Mid North Island, who would like to host it in October 2021? Suggestions to me, Adrian Skelton, in your own time.
