Step 6. Bring your A-game
Get involved! We said it was a competition, after all. The two most active users who appear on top of the Leaderboard by the beginning of the second break on Tuesday (3 Oct) will win a dinner with Nick Vujicic!

But don’t think you can get away with spam — we’ll be keeping an eye on your posts to make sure they are relevant.
Step 7. Give feedback
We would love to hear your feedback! Within the app, you will find a Survey section for just that purpose. We will ask you about your expectations, your ratings of our speakers, and for suggestions or thoughts on your experience. Use these questions as a platform to voice your thoughts and opinions, and to let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable.
Psst… you will also get a bunch of Leaderboard points for participating in the surveys!
