5th biennial Working With Boys, Building Fine Men conference: Stories of Success

The conference was held in Newcastle on 4, 5 and 6 July 2007. Keynote speakers Melvyn Davies (UK), Michael Gurian (USA) and Australia's own Andrew Fuller captivated and enlightened everyone. The people who held seminars, workshops and break-out sessions were universally wonderful. And the boys who sang, danced and displayed their sporting prowess gave us all hope for the future.
