    • Strategy for achieving impact
      Choose a very rich topic which can be accessed from many levels
      Consider innovative approaches
      Don’t be afraid of a lost leader. Nothing is wasted
      Develop partnerships with sponsors or identify vested interests
      Develop outreach audience (50 amenity soc. talks @ 50 people each = 2500 customers)
      Allow others to develop your work but aim for ultimate quality control
    • IMPACT STRATEGY
      Doors have hinges. Find a saint to open the doors
