Deliver The Best Year-End Team Meeting

This past week I had the privilege and opportunity to spend time with one of our largest clients in Atlanta, GA. They created a unique space for fellowship, reflection on the previous year, planning for the future, and equipping its leaders to execute on strategies which will lead them closer to their 2020 vision.
