I have been away (from NZ) for just under two months. The first three weeks was spent in the Philippines with the SMI Center team. This was a great time of catching up with everyone and it was so good seeing the Center Team doing so well! My main purpose for this travel was to […]

Moving Forward Together was the theme of the Global Development Consultation (GDC) that was held online last August 8-12. This was a five-day event, attended by SM’s international leaders, global region leaders and their teams, and for the first time, our national leaders and their teams.
