Planting New Seeds

  • New training, new perspectives, appreciative inquiry, collaboration, etc
  • Online engagement & social media
    • application in case studies
    • applied use of product for conference attendees

    It was traditionally a major adjunct feature of our international conferences. In fact, it is how the training program got off the ground in the early years.
