- This was a very active chat, and it was great to see several people taking part for the first time! Amongst other things, we discussed the qualities that make a good leader, the difference between leaders and managers, and ways in which professional bodies can provide leadership.
We are experimenting with ways to speed up the process of summarising the chats, and we're giving Storify a try. Please let us know what you think!
