1. Flash mob: after a very sad session, a few people in the audience started getting up and singing “Oh Happy Day”. Many more guests followed, a mix of men and women, creating a beautiful atmosphere, moving around the room and finishing up on stage. To be fair, it was part of the “SHOW” although we were under the impression at first that it was a pure improvisation (which would have make it even better). The reason I know it was part of the show is that two of the ladies from my table never came back for the rest of the days after that and most men in the audience were gone for the day to. Still it was nice, happy and different.

2. Presentation about “Sex & Health” by Dr Gabrielle Morrisey: the reason I enjoyed this session is because I find SEX is a very taboo topic in Australia. In France, every body talk about sex, every day! It is one of the most common conversation topics, after politics and food! Most people in the room at the conference looked uncomfortable at the beginning of the presentation. It was interesting to learn that women have issues to ‘switch on’ because of their multi-tasking ability. Do you think about the ‘to do list’ when cuddling with Mr Right? I confess, I often do.
♥ The three items listed above.
♥ The guest speakers: most of them were really good. In addition to Dr Sam Prince and Dr Gabrielle Morrisey, I especially enjoyed listening to Lillian Rodrigues-Pang (story teller), Catherine Saxelby (accredited nutrionist) and Evelyn M. Field (expert on school & workplace bullying).
♥ Laughing Yoga at lunch time: I didn’t participate (I regret it now) but it looked like fun. An original initiative, I like it!
♥ The goodie bag: filled with organic and gluten free products from the sponsors. I stayed till the end and even got some extras nuts and apples!
