Seeing a little bit of the country

The Regional Knowledge Leaders training workshops continue, this week the team are HOT in Darwin, and last week they were in Tamworth, where we had a record number of participants – 19 not counting the Magnificent Three! Why is Tamworth so popular? Could it be we have some secret guitar-strummers (or boot-scooters) out there? Anyway, whatever the team are doing, it’s working – we’ve had some positive comments back, including the following:

“I really did enjoy the training. The team had refined the 3 days of training that I did in December to a very tight and professional two days of training. They had a good mix of experiential and paper based learning and I would recommend the training to all those involved in NRM.” Megan Tattersall, Aust Govt NRM Facilitator, NSW Biodiversity

“THE COURSE WAS GREAT!.... THE PRESENTERS EXCEEDED THE COURSE!!!” Garry Reynolds, Aust Govt Facilitator, NSW Coastal and Marine (pictured below at his certificate ceremony with Bruce Boyes)

“It was really good!!! And I’ve finally got a decent pen!!!” Tony Clancy, Communications Manager, Land & Water Australia (OK so he’s biased – I didn’t pay him anything to say this though)

Next week the team are heading to Townsville, then Launceston, then Perth. For more information, go to

Cheers, Kathy
