Good People

Sabrina Colón"Build into your process milestones to assess what you’re doing and don’t be afraid to change course if your original public involvement plan is not reaching the audiences you hoped. There is nothing worse than working a plan you know isn’t solving the issue just because it’s what’s on paper." - Sabrina Colón

Failing Forward

Kim Hyshka, CP3

Tasters are 45-minute samples of longer courses – a chance for you to try out the course and the trainer... they’re free, and they’re only for IAP2 members! Join Kim Hyshka on Tuesday, Feb. 25 (11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern) for “Failing Forward”. We usually want to talk about our successes – it’s only natural – but when things don’t go well, that’s when we learn. Bring your tales of woe – Kim will bring hers -- as we “come together in failure”, and help one another move forward.
