Skills in play

Paying attention in a different way to when facilitating, by having to think about what I observe and how it flows from one section to another. Informal chats with participants during breaks drift into the EU referendum and the absence of real information about the pros and cons of membership, and later, the emergence of early AI and the theory of mind.
