Day 1 - Wednesday 2nd
Inspired by a potential myth around FN having different approach than non-FN. Do we approach the making of work differently? How important is protocol in this? Are protocols limitations? Is it always about country? Does it have to be about giving back to community? Are we always working to shift perceptions?
