Published on

Here's what I plan to cover in the webinar:
- A proven process to identify what are the priorities.
- Who should be involved in this process.
- 3 important things to focus on in order to succeed.
- The common problems that can hijack your agenda.
- What the experts say.
- The one question you should always ask yourself...often.
- How you can turn this into a advocacy moment.
Too hard? Then at least aim for a 1% weekly improvement.
