The weekend we locked ourselves in a house
In this week’s episode, Kate and Gabby reflect on the weekend that was: Somos21 Board retreat. Together with the incredible group who are leading the Somos21 charge, Gab and Kate locked themselves in a house to dream and strategise. They both came to the obvious conclusion; starting a non-for-profit association isn’t easy. Nor is finding passionate volunteers to shape and lead it. But didn’t someone clever once say that “nothing worth having comes easy”? That’s where we’re at. It’s not easy, but its most certainly worth having. And looking back at where we started, we have certainly come a long way! Even better, we have come away from this weekend with clarity and ambition to keep striving. Somos21 is transforming the Australia-Latin America relationship. Listen now to learn more. Contact us at info@somos21.org to share your story.
