At the Exchange regional conference in Melbourne, our young and enthusiastic Mayfielders presented some interesting provocations. According to WA Mayfielder Amanda Ying, "iI was inspiring, confronting (in the best way possible) and the most valuable investment of my time in my career to date that I was lucky enough to be a part of." Here, Amanda challenges us all to think, share and provoke using the "what if we" concept.
