A Matter of Impact: Key Skillsets (Main Stage Opening Plenary)

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It is hoped ‘impact’ will be a crucial component of the conversations throughout all of SEWF 2013, but we wanted to put that primacy of purpose front and centre. So we are taking a page out of Stephen Covey’s iconic book and beginning SEWF 2013 with a deliberate focus on the end point of everything we do, ‘impact’. The opening plenary will look at impact from three angles – creating it, measuring it, and collaborating to take it to the next level.

If you haven’t already done so, click here to register for SEWF 2013. Early Bird ends July 25, 2013.
