We asked for your ideas, and did you ever give them to us! On the blog and on Twitter, your passion and energy (not to mention your smarts!) came through loud and clear. Not only that, the huge range of thoughtful and creative responses showed just how diverse and hungry this demographic is – hungry to be inspired, empowered, challenged and entertained. This is exactly what we want NLS6 to do for you.
So, what’s happening with all those ideas?
We nabbed every blog and Twitter response (even the tongue-in-cheek ones!) and noticed some pretty strong themes emerging. The NLS mainstays – professional skills, strategies and pathways now, and in the future – came back again and again, as well as some delicious thoughts around creativity, empowerment, and living/working/thinking at the cutting edge. Not only that, you came up with some great suggestions for specific speakers. Local heroes, international superstars, movers and shakers from all corners of the profession, and outside it; I want to invite them ALL to the NLS6 party!
Unfortunately, we now reach the hard part.
One of the big jobs for the organising committee over the next few weeks will be refining this list of awesome into a targeted, exciting, program that will bring something different to the table, and set your minds (and Twitter feeds!) alight.
Watch this space for more updates as they emerge. We tagged the call for ideas #mynls6 for a reason: this event is for you, and we will be looking for your direct input and feedback every step of the way. Stay loud. Stay opinionated. Most of all, stay passionate.
