    What a great time I had! I really liked the smooth operation, friendly stewards, new venue, the new lunches (I would have liked some more light in the eating area.), the range of fascinating subjects and inspiring speakers - just sorry I couldn't see them all. Thanks to everyone involved in making it a really enjoyable and worthwhile weekend.

    Default Conference 09

    Thoroughly enjoyed it, very different atmosphere, friendlier and emotionally warmer.

    I took learnings from every seminar I attended, even when they were somewhat too NLP-based for my liking. I want to see that the next clean conference is what it says on the tin, and not a vehicle for NLP dressed up as if it were clean.

    I liked the idea of supervision sessions being exclusively or primarily "clean" in their nature, although I expect there are times when the supervisor has a duty to intrude Pt reality/ethic/legality on the supervisee.

    "When I am at my best ..." optional to replace this with "when I am being my best ..."

    The "clean start" started to feel a little onerous to me after two days - do we really have to be positive all the time? what about letting out some negativity first? This clean start feels to me like a strong NLP intrusion into clean language, and definitely not in the spirit of David's "treating all the information equally" - and I see its benefits in trainings, just not for every seminar at a clean conference!

    The "Four Horsemen of Relationships" led me to associate these to the actual four horsemen of the apocalypse, and helped my thinking on "clean relating / relating cleanly" - methods of dynamically exploring relating using clean questions.

    Also the breaks - make them longer; the chats and time with other folk between seminars was equally if not more valuable to me than the seminars.
