It's not often that I get a call to attend a conference, so the invitation to go to the January 2012 EWB (Engineers Without Borders) Conference in Ottawa was a great opportunity to facilitate Laughter Sessions for an organisation which is making contribution for change in many peoples lives for basic necessities: like, access to water, for example.
Ashley Good - conference content director - invited Sue and myself to present two Laughter Sessions; both of which were well attended and well received.
The title and theme for this conference was 'Systemic Innovations' with a special feature on the concept of "Failing Forward"

Thanks to Ashley and all the participants of the EWB Conference for creating space for laughter in community.
