What People Are Saying...

  • “I loved many of the ideas presented last week. The idea of departments keeping a board of staff skills so when we need something specialized we could possibly find it within our own organization rather than having to do a contract for a consultant. I would love to hear more about this idea and others like it that support our work in real world, practical ways.”
