I was at the LIANZA strategic planning day today. There were lots of things discussed including all the achievements over the past year. The two most interesting things (that I can talk about here) 1. Laurinda handing over the pounamu to Corin as the incoming president. She said the pounamu came with the knowledge of all the previous presidents who had worn it. 2. The number of individuals named by people during introductions as being influential on their professional career. (Apologies if those sentences are a bit confusing, we went out after the meeting…)
I can’t say too much else about the day* since it’s all work in progress. However I’m really excited to take up my President Elect role in July.
*Okay, one more.
