    Discussion sessions

    Our four discussion sessions are facilitated by Debbie Roberts, who is a graphic recorder and facilitator. She runs Engage Visually, which uses visual approaches to help people and organisations create the right environment for people to think, develop ideas and explore issues. They are spaces for up to 20 people and will not be recorded or livestreamed.

    Debbie has done some amazing work for NSUN in the past – you can see some of her work in our previous AGM reports.
