Chris Nichols will come to this event straight from his 1000km pilgrimage walk around the south west coast during summer 2016. Bringing his poetry and writing, as well as art found and made along the walk, Chris will bring us his current reflections what it means to do valuable work in organisations and business at this stage in our shared story, and what difference we can bring in service of the greater flourishing of all life on this planet here and now.
