Week 3 check-in
Checking in to see how you are all doing and a few nuggets of information.
I hope you are keeping well. There are a few things I'd like to share with you
1. In last week's live session we chatted about ways we can support one another, share opportunities, and additional benefits you can get out of this training. Some people had some ideas about other training opportunities. If you are willing to share them please comment on this post (keeps them all in one place). Someone else suggested a Google sheet, but my thought was then ideas would be in two places, and that would be confusing, please do say if you'd like it though, I will happily set up it.
2. Monday 25th is a bank holiday in the UK, live sessions will happen as normal this day, but for those who are taking the day off there will be an extra live session next week on Wednesday 27th at 11 am BST.
3. I think it was Suzanne (?!) who said that she found a sort of speed dating for conservationists networking event fun and useful. So we thought we would try this out! We will do this in week 4 in the half-hour before the live sessions properly begin. Any ideas for how we should structure it or if there should be set questions to ask each other? I'm thinking 2 minutes in a breakout room with a random other person to find out more about their work/interests, thoughts?
4. Here is an article a colleague and I co-wrote a while back for the Conservation Optimism blog. It gives you a bit of a flavour of the consultancy work that WildTeam does and the great people we meet along the way.
I hope you are all having good weeks and staying sane through the lockdown.
