Networking is one of the reasons people come to the Pioneer Network conference. The opportunity to connect with fellow pioneers to share; celebrating successes and solving problems. This year, we would like to help you make connections based on specific needs or questions you have. Perhaps it's a practice you are struggling with getting your team to buy into. Or on the other hand, you may have figured out an answer to bringing a practice to your community. Let us help you make the connection.
1. Is there a particular topic or practice that you would like to be able to meet with someone to learn more about how it has been implemented successfully?
2. Is there a particular topic or practice that you have had success with and would be willing to share your story with a fellow pioneer?
Let us know...and we'll take it from there, helping you make Pioneer Connections in Denver!
