Each year, a group of past delegates and facilitators from the Forum head off the beaten path in search of community, adventure, long conversations and a way to put this idea of “servant leadership” into practice. This July, a group of us spent 2 weeks with friends on the island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu. […]

This article written by Lydia Scott, currently based in Sydney, but a past delegate and facilitator from both the Aspiring Leaders Forum in New Zealand and NSLF in Canberra.

Vanuatu Reflections – Nina Barnett

Posted by | · · · | Past Delegate Reflections | No Comments

Vanuatu is one special place in the world – one that I never quite expected I would go. But there I found myself, balancing on a fallen coconut tree in the river, tentatively avoiding the nasty spiky snails while my limbs were enthusiastically scrubbed and soaped by the little ‘pikininis’ (meaning children in Bislama) who […]

“So that’s it. It’s all over.” I remember these words being spoken by my fellow intern, Mim Cameron, as we settled into our car seats on the last day of Forum. It was Sunday, about midday. Most of the delegates had left, our belts were buckled and the Ford Territory was poised to exit the […]

When my good friend Max pitched me the idea of going to last years forum, I had no idea just how much of an impact this one event could have on my life. He tried his best to explain what those four jam packed days looked like and to be honest I didn’t really know […]
