Week 5 PMWC check-in
How is everyone?!
How is your week going? There is a lot of stuff in this week's material, so hope you are getting on ok! A couple of thoughts from me :)
Does anyone think they might start using the trackers or any other PMWC documents? Or perhaps you have a different tool that you like that you could share with the group? One tool I’ve been using for almost a year on a personal level for planning life and work is bullet journaling. I was a bit sceptical at first, as when I was researching it there were lots of Instagram images of pretty looking notebooks with beautiful doodles, and that just wasn’t going to be me! But I brought myself a yellow notebook, and I have to say, it has succeeded my expectations. I really enjoy the physical act of writing rather than relying on the computer so much.

COULD YOU START YOUR OWN CONSERVATION ORGANISATION?!
A couple of weeks ago we had a poll about potential barriers to starting your own conservation organisation. Yes, it is quite a scary thought, but conservation, more than ever, needs people who can think in innovative and creative ways. The job market is tough, but the skills you’ve learnt during this training could help you set up your own conservation organisation. Here is a post from Adam Barlow, WildTeam Executive director with his thoughts about setting up a conservation organisation.
The exam will be on Monday the 12th of October at normal times (10 am BST and 6 pm BST). To accommodate those who can't make those dates we will put on an extra session at 6 pm BST Wednesday the 14th October. Unfortunately only in extenuating circumstances can we put on extra exam sessions as they require a lot of our time to run. You must attend a live session to do the exam. Any questions or concerns about the exam please do get in touch.
If you have any questions please get in touch.
Hope you are all well.
