November 17th, 2022 - Flourishing communities with a neurodiverse / hidden disability foundation

Is it through our desire to succeed that we often forget to listen and respond to everything we do and not just within the projects we manage or are involved in? How do you plan, and how do you manage to change a plan, and still look like you know what you are doing?  Register in advance Join us to discuss:  The
