Derse Shares How Strategic Summits Can Bring Your Program to New Heights

In this podcast we’ve brought in our Client Strategic Service experts, Rick Stoner and Charlie Weber, to share why strategic summits are important to your face-to-face program.

Rick and Charlie get real with what to expect, and cover off on some popular questions you should ask before heading into a strategic summit, including:

  1. Who should attend a strategic summit?
  2. What can I expect to walk away with after a strategic summit?
  3. How does a strategic summit work?

If you feel your face-to-face program could benefit from gaining more alignment in your organization, and taking a more strategic approach, this podcast is for you!
