Issues? Nothing we can’t handle!

Bring it on: bring your issues, challenges, ideas and dreams to this interactive pragmatic session on issue resolution. Wanted to implement that new way of doing business but just cannot seem to get traction? Trying to improve the attitude of a colleague or subordinate — or supervisor? Attempting to make those Zoom meetings more lively? In this interactive session, we will explore those issues that pertain to our lives as collaborators, project managers, designers and more. Prepare to engage and succeed!

Registrants, please reflect on real or potential issues you experience and email them to [email protected] by January 18th for anonymous inclusion in the activities.
