    • Creative Insight from Connections 2018
      Rob Jenkins interviews David Sherwood (Silver Bullet)
      “Knowledge certainly is essential, but there is something else that you need if you want to use that knowledge creatively. To be creative, you must also be willing to ‘let go’, to allow your current knowledge to be challenged, and perhaps discarded. You cannot be ‘in love’ with your own ideas, and you must allow yourself to ‘unlearn’. Knowledge and challenge lead to discovery…” Read the full article here as 2-page spread, and as single page display.

    • Become a moderator for the AGM
      by GYA AGM Organisation
      Each GYA AGM is only as fantastic as you, the members and alumni, make it! Therefore, consider taking on responsibilities for this year’s AGM – by picking a session to help with, or coming up with small icebreaker-ideas that we could do together. Or join in as a session moderator to help get discussions going and guide them. There will be no need for lengthy presentations, so do not worry. Rather, the AGM is all about engaging with your fellow members and keeping the exchange going.

      Heading into the third year of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it was simply not possible to allow for a full in-person conference and AGM this year.
