Kama Leaders Jackie, Bill, Amanda and Sarah enjoyed the Branch Conference yesterday, unpacking the Seven Secrets of Successful Scouting. The perspective from three “outside” speakers was fascinating. Whether its scouting, government or business, there are of course core principles to doing things well. We enjoyed hearing from Neil Savery, General Manager, Australian Building Codes Board, Rob Brierley, HR Director, PACCAR Australia (Kenworth Trucks!), and Claudia Vannithone, MD of AGENCY9. We were encouraged to think about knowing where you want to go, and working out how to get there, both for our own group, and for scouting in the ACT more generally. The day was interspersed with amusing skits performed by “real scouts”. Two of those real scouts were Kama’s own Nick and Kireet. They did a terrific job. They are to be commended for volunteering their time to this event, which included two rehearsals before.
