ADVENTURE AWAITS... AND WE HELP YOU FIND IT
When you first built your company’s business model, you likely spent hours, days, or weeks imagining every detail. You probably envisioned your product and purpose, your audience and clientele, a state-of-the-art office space, and top talent knocking down the doors to become part of your team.

It can be difficult to decide what events are worth attending. You want to learn, network, and have a good time. You need to get your money's worth. Your time is valuable and you don't want to waste it on unproductive events.
Be INTENTIONAL with the events you attend.
Do your research. Determine your goals. Create a budget for business outings. Ask about who else is attending. Check out the event website to discover who is speaking, what breakout sessions will be available and how you can learn from the material being presented.

It’s the start of the new year and that means it’s time to plan your team building and bonding calendar. “86% of employees believe LACK of collaboration/ineffective communication is the biggest influence on workplace failure.” When it comes to investing in your team, intentionality is key. Winging it or figuring it out as you go will give you lackluster results while wasting time and money. So don’t wing it… Do this instead.
