    Be a Key Change Agent in Your Own Organization

    March 13, 2015 7:30 am to 9:00 am

    British leadership coach and executive counsel Carol Braddick will join our own Laura Penny to look at the challenges of “change” — and how development officers can help their organizations change for the better.

    All nonprofits must evolve if they are to remain viable to the publics they serve. But change isn’t easy.
    Carol and Laura will help us learn how to navigate and manage the changes that are no doubt just ahead. For all of us!
