A road trip holiday followed by my favourite conference for learning, being challenged, inspiration, lots of laughs and reconnecting with some great mates – the Applied Improvisation Conference in Portland, Oregon. I’ve written before about the flow of work and the seasons, and how my energy waxes and wanes according to the time of the year. This, and the different time zones inhabited by my friends and colleagues, makes for some interesting connectedness – or not!
