It was a hive of industry, at least! and much discussion ensued after the unveiling of the design for our Brisbane Collaborative Challenge. There were some voluble interjections and questions, but calm was restored after some explanations and emphasis placed on the need for flexibility and lateral thinking in our approach! If nothing else, it ought to be an entertaining journey. We drew our shapes out of the hat! Not everyone was happy with the draw, but that’s life. People were allowed to swap, if they so wished. No one volunteered to take on the shape I managed to draw out….. Watch this space for further developments!
As to the rest of the day, there was show and tell, and some work done.
