Day 1, September 2016 : We will help to you identify your leadership qualities, provide space to reflect on your practice and build on your strengths to help you to develop your own local activity.
 
With peer to peer mentoring and support from the Network, you will spread your enthusiasm and deliver an event of your choosing that will suit your region.
