We had our first Community of Practice event in Cape Town at the end of May – it felt like a big milestone in terms of our development this year, as it was our first physical engagement with members and people interested in TA. Rather than describing the event ourselves, we asked two people who were there to give us a brief description of their impression:
The first meeting of the new, revived SATAA in Cape Town was informal and purposeful. Good food, good wine, and good company enabled the emergence of good ideas around working with TA in South Africa. I look forward to more of this and to seeing TA have a positive impact on many individuals and organisations through the work of the SATAA.
I attended my first SATAA meeting on Friday 29 May 2015. I would thoroughly recommend these meetings to anyone who is interested in sharing and deepening their knowledge around TA. We had some really interesting discussions, ate very tasty snacks and laughed and learnt at the same time.
Alex van Oostveen invited us to participate in a practical exercise working with TA tools for coaching. It is always a good sign when the time is up too soon and there are still more questions to ask and people that I would like to have spent time getting to know better. I will definitely be going back for more of these sessions.
Join us for our next workshop on the 28th August, at 26 Chiappini Street, De Waterkant. You can find more detail in our events calendar.
