SPCNM Alumni

The Alumni Association was formally launched in April 2023. To date, we have had our launch event, completed focus groups, and our inaugural stake holder survey, and kicked off our branded merchandise with our own special Allumi-tea blend. The Alumni Association is run by graduates for graduates and has a focus on networking and connection, peer support, provision of a resource hub, and facilitation of professional development.

We invite SPCNM graduates, new and old, to join us at this link https://spcnm.us14.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=4b632ae03dea070b3791caceb&id=c332cbd8bb.

“It was so lovely to reconnect with not only many from my cohort, but others I now know through the college and the industry. All the elements of the event were so appreciated by all who attended, from the calibre of the speakers – Bruce Lipton was amazing and absolutely knows how to captivate and engage his audience. To the beautiful connection tea created especially for our alumni. To the fabulous food on the grazing table and the selection of herbal cocktails and mocktails we enjoyed whilst networking with other alumni.

Huge thanks to the Alumni committee for all their hard work and congratulations on putting together such a successful SPCNM Alumni launch event”.  Mel Trimble, SPCNM graduate 2021
