I’ve been asked to be one of the keynote speakers at the 45th ACMHN International Mental Health Nursing Conference in Sydney, being held from 8th to 10th October 2019 (see the #ACMHN2019 hashtag on Twitter). To be an invited speaker at such a prestigious conference is a pretty big deal to me.
In amongst some incredibly impressive people, I’m on the #ACMHN2019 program as a keynote speaker. 😬
You know how on TV they often end the serious news with a lightweight panda story?
