My hope is that for all of you reading this, that you and your loved ones are remaining healthy. As we step into the end of Q1, I think many of us have been struck that the new decade has been full of surprises and pivots for business.

It's geared for those who want hands-on practice and learning about how to lead and design INTERACTIVE, VIRTUAL CONVERSATIONS, based on my 2017 book, Effective Virtual Conversations. Upcoming dates include a five week session starting on Monday March 30th, and one day offerings on Wednesday April 1 and 8, 2020. Click here to learn more and reserve your spot.
