2017 Closing Retreat
By no means was the Closing Retreat the end for our fabulous participants who extended their Leadership journey this year……
It is with very mixed feelings that journey has finished. I will try and keep living my own values and those extra ones acquired on this journey. It can be difficult to achieve this when under pressure. Now it’s time to spread our wings and go out into the community. We have been set free to fly and choose our next path in the journey of life.

LGSC challenged me to recognise my strengths and identify the areas I need to build on so I can become a more effective leader. During the past 10 months I have revised my definition of leadership and reconnected with the values and issues that matter the most to me. My knowledge of and passion for the Great South Coast region has been enhanced through the excellent presenters and field trips I was privileged to experience in this program. The community project component of the program was a valuable opportunity to practice the skills I had learned and work with a team of diverse and skilled people. I have been inspired by each of the program participants and created links with new networks that will benefit my future volunteering roles. From the confidence and skills that LGSC has given me, I plan to seek community networks and new volunteering opportunities that will enable me to make a real difference in my community.
