Fellowship Alumni Retreat 2017

Byron Bay, 3rd February - 5th February

Alumni, register now to secure your place at the Progress Fellows Retreat 2017, returning to the Byron Hinterland

When: Friday 3rd – Sun 5th February 2016.

Who: Australian Progress fellowship alumni from all cohorts (Melbourne 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016; Sydney 2014, 2015 and 2016; Perth 2015, Brisbane 2016, New Zealand 2016, and National Message Fellowships in 2015 and 2016). There are now 230+ of you and this retreat will only accommodate a maximum of 40 (plus camping), so it’ll fill up quickly!

Where: Based on popular demand, we’ve re-booked at the same venue- a stunning and unique property in the hinterland of Byron Bay. The venue is set in a beautiful secluded rainforest environment. It has fantastic communal meeting spaces and a range of accommodation options (from private rooms to camping).

What:
– The agenda is interactive and focuses on informal connection and mutual support and problem-solving, rather than a return to the classroom..
– Spend time learning from each other, talking about your passions and future plans
– Explore new collaborations, and discuss strategies to shift Australia on your issues.
– Relax, have a few glasses of red on the deck, or swim in the beautiful river that flows throw the property

What did the fellows who came along in 2016 say?


“I came to the weekend with 3 questions I wanted help with. Between ‘what should I do next’, Hahrie’s workshops, 1:1 coaching, and the reciprocity circle I was able to get help with all 3 questions. So that was fantastic! I also loved getting to connect with even more of the amazing people who have done the fellowship.”

“What was the best part? The chance to meet up with people I already knew from my cohort and also meet other campaigners. The pace was great (not so intense as the Fellowship retreats) and gave the space to have conversations which was really helpful.”
