Guest speaker Darren Flanagan gave a touching story of commitment and bravery when he spoke of his personal experiences following the 2006 Beaconsfield mine collapse.
Team members enjoyed a range of other sessions designed to educate and also to give them the opportunity for input into the future of the organisation.
