I had an absolute ball and gained sooooo much information, tips and tricks.  I am very excited to be able to come home and hopefully knock down some of those Stop signs! …  was definitely one of those who wanted to do everything … The lectures were interesting, informative and inspiring. The presenters were fantastic and I am so grateful for their time – not only the presentation itself but the preparation that must have gone into it, and also their willingness to share … The lunch/dinner tables were terrific … Overall though, I really did have the best time … Everyone did the most amazing …  – Kerin Stinear, Qld

Yes it has been a shock coming back home and having to fend for ourselves after being looked after so well on the ship. Jacqui and I certainly enjoyed our time on the cruise and I hope that my contributions to the events were helpful to the attendees.  I wanted to thank you and the rest of your team for the wonderful job you all did organising  the event … Everyone I spoke to was certainly pleased with the variety and scope of the programme. – Jeremy Palmer, NSW (speaker)

… Aside from the talks, my family and I had a great day on Wednesday in Rotorua, visiting the geysers there and taking my life in my hands on the Sky Swing. Freefall for fifty meters in a car, which then swings for a couple of minutes as a pendulum – on the top of a mountain!
