I appreciated the information about how to plan
on who to call upon...top 10% at least once a year. Using volunteers
to make connections, too, with the businesses is a good idea.
Good review but several good ideas and some nice ways to word
Although I found the content and direction of
the webinar somewhat elementary for where our Development Office
and agency are with planning, I appreciated the speaker's willingness
to share specific charts and info that we request after the session.
While this type of detailed info is more helpful to me, I can appreciate
not consuming all of the time from others on this.
