There is a great balance of fun sessions and within a short space of time everyone is happy to engage and chat to each other and there is no time to feel left out as the energy is infectious. The mix of tours and alternative sessions; meditation, walking tours etc is a great way to get everyone talking and relaxed. My favourite is the morning meditation as it really energised everyone and broke down some barriers, the insights from some market leaders is also very useful and gives a valuable inside look at what’s going on.
