Sometimes success rides on making what matters to you matter to others. Lisa brings to life how influence involves building relevance, surrounding yourself with wicked smart people, and using research and data as your secret weapon to opening opportunities for revenue, visibility, and partnerships.

Attendees will: 

    • Make what matters to you matter to others by building relevance for the idea you are promoting.
    • Be an empathetic leader by investing in mentorship, collaborative relationships, and teamwork
    • Bring together others’ unique and diverse perspectives to arrive at the best possible solutions.
