Nadia Chambers

HI Pete - a proposal from Nadia and Liz:
Thinkshop - "The view from the stage"
Session idea: This thinkshop will build upon and expand the concept of 'dying to live' that Liz and Nadia presented in their well received thinkshop at CC001 last year. The view from the stage thinkshop will take participants on a journey of discovery through self-reflection, challenging conventional wisdom and extraordinary conversation. It will be based around the stories of those present and will sit within the 'Tools for Life' guild space.
The session will last for 75 minutes and will require simple sound (mics for Nadia and Liz plus amplification and the ability to play a sound file through an amplifier) - these will need to be provided please.
If there is a possibility of reduced rate tickets for the presenters then that would be appreciated. Other than that, no additional resources will be required.
