The first group of 14 Bee Ambassadors successfully completed a 3 day training program in September. Ambassadors attended from Qld, NSW, Vic, Tasmania and Norfolk Island. Here is what they had to say after the inaugural program:
- This is such a great amazing inspiring initiative!
- Being exposed to the research activities that we are supporting is extremely important
- Just loved the whole experience of the 3 days. I have come back full of enthusiasm and new ideas that I can put to work
- Evening sessions were inspirational
- Loved the opportunity to meet other bee advocates and get to know what they’re all doing
- A thoroughly professional and effective workshop. It was clear that the delegates enjoyed the program and benefited greatly from the activities and discussion.
