How Campaign Bootcamp Germany changed my life completely

Before attending Bootcamp Germany, I had not been active in politics at all. I thought I would not be able to change anything meaningful in this big field.

Mistakes :

The venue we used for the party wasn’t inclusive and was very noisy

We're looking into places where we can have a party that serves all members of the community, and somewhere we can control the music and noise levels more easily!

Mistakes :

The campaign scenario became too intense

In future we’re going to have a briefing at the start of every scenario to outline what actions are and are not appropriate. We won’t hesitate in future to suspend the scenario if we have any worries

Mistakes :

Not all the trainers received their thank-you gift

Michelle was so busy with all the moving parts at Bootcamp in October that a few of our lovely trainers didn't receive their thank you gift before they hopped in their taxi

Mistakes :

We nearly ran out of beds

We discovered that actually the venue hadn't checked there would be enough beds. After a bit of scramble it's all OK now, everyone will have a nice bed to sleep in.
