I registered, got the confirmation email but never got the link to join the summit.

Hi Hector, we appreciate how annoying it must have been to not receive the link, and we apologise for that. As we explained, sometimes emails go into spam folders or are blocked by large corporation security systems, but it was definitely sent. Unfortunately you didn't let us know until the following week when it was too late for us to resend. Hopefully you can catch up on some of the recordings and join a future event soon.

Lots of powerful discussion and I walked away feeling so calm and empowered. Thank you WCS for an amazing day!

An insightful day, with great awareness of how tough this space can be to work in - wellbeing was a core component of the day.

Great event! I learned a lot! Was great to hear so many varying perspectives. It was also reassuring to hear from different people how they are all winging it to some extent, but feel motivated by their experiences to stand up and make change. Having now attended a number of We Create Space events, I can't recommend them enough!

The workshop did not really have a Corporate perspective, which was the reason why I participated. Too many sessions on breathing etc., 1 was enough. Content definitely interesting.

I highly recommend We Create Space! I participated in a 2-day 'Who Am I?' Virtual Queer Leadership Retreat with other Queer leaders and it was truly transformational–I left forever changed. The intentional and purposeful programming by Michael and Maylis was so meaningful and well structured. The biggest draw for me was the community care and networking opportunity of being able to see and hear from other queer folx. This is what has been the hardest for me to find in my own personal journey.

The workshop I attended literally created space in both my body and mind for exploration, curiosity and openness. It was wonderfully facilitated, inspired immensely by the speakers' talks and other queer participants sharings. It shifted the way I saw different aspects of my life and opened the room for more discovery. Definitely recommended to all queer people who want to learn more and increase their inner potential!

I took part in a weekend Who Am I? retreat and highly recommend it. The group size is intimate so never feels too daunting and you're able to build connections well. Maylis was a fantastic organiser - felt there was great communication from pre-booking right through to afterwards. Michael is a fantastic host, he leads the retreat with from a place of kindness, vulnerability and openness I find really commendable. Whether you're new to self exploration or a seasoned pro - I think this is worth doing.
