SOL allows three days of networking with others, a time to refresh and recharge, and lots of learning and looking at ourselves and leadership styles. Thank you Karen and Liz, job well done. 
Claire, Fundamentals, Christchurch 

A very informative and fun three days. It was great that it was not all just sitting and taking notes. It was practical and memory stamping. Thank you both.
