- Talk 5 – 03.04.2021 – The Future, Series Reflections & Closing
The sessions will take place over 5 weeks and once registered you will be committing to all 5 sessions, they will be delivered over Zoom.
To keep the keep the talk space brave, spaces are limited and are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Fostering a sense of connection, continuity and community during this programme is important. Once registered the same attendees will be expected to participate in the group sessions over the next 5 weeks. Also, as part of the aim of creating a protected and brave space, attendees will be expected to have their camera on at the start and end of the talk, and the reflective discussions which take place during the talks. It is hoped that attendees will feel comfortable enough to participate and contribute to the discussions, but this is not a requirement.
Please note, this programme will be offered again during the year and will be open to all.
