What were the best things about the conference?

"Learning new things which I have already started to implement into my practice!"

"Variety of people and organisations they represented - so many varying perspectives."

"The ability to network across different sectors, as well as the range of backgrounds of those attending."

"Hearing the amazing work that people are doing all around NZ and the world. Getting to meet people with different and inspiring perspectives."

"The opportunity to meet and network with professionals across RJ and mediation."

"The mix of disciplines and the opportunity to learn from others from other fields. Also the emphasis placed by organisers on mixing and interacting with new people. It set the tone and made everyone be very approachable. The atmosphere this created was really special."
