Feedback from previous year's program

"I think this program not only taught you how to communicate and become a successful leader, it also was very useful to make you self-aware on a personal level. It was an amazing course. The facilitators and special guests definitely helped create a comfortable environment to be able to open up and be okay with being vulnerable."

"Highly recommend! A power packed skill and confidence building course that offers opportunity to connect with like minded community passionate people and build relationships, programmes and well anything we can that helps make Marion a better city to live work and play!"

"Great opportunity to feed one another’s passion, curiosity, commitment to community; and to develop a supportive local network of doers!"
