Mary Alice Arthur, Story Activist, digging into three approaches to make the most of the power of community.
• The power of relationship: Who are the practitioner mates who will help you lift your game to the next level? What accountability will you create with them?
• The power of story: How you can make story your ally in supporting your next steps into the flourishing of your work and life
• The power of practice: Explore a simple framework to enable you to put the focus on the elements that will leapfrog you forward as a practitioner.

The True Colours Phenomenon session has now moved from Thursday morning to a shorter taster session on Friday. There was a lot of interest in this session and so we are delighted to be able to invite David Shaked and Vivien Hau to present the full session at a stand-alone session (free to ODN Europe members) on 18 June where more people will be able to attend. Hold this date in your diary and more details on this will follow shortly.
