Kia ora colleagues

I’m excited to tell you about two mantle PD opportunities coming up in May at opposite ends of the country – one in Northland and the other in Christchurch.

Saturday 20th May Te Tai Tokerau Literacy association is holding its seminar day. Details are on the flier below. As well as my keynote, I happen to know that one of the workshops is a drama-related one, to be led by the lovely Renee Downey. The organisers tell me that everyone is welcome to attend so please contact them if you’d like to sign up. Their email is

This long form workshop will take you through a step by step process for planning a Mantle of the Expert experience. It will be suitable for interested beginners or more experienced practitioners.
