In this innovative and interactive format, spend 20 minutes hearing the best practice case study on how to identify who your key stakeholders are, how to segment them and what your strategy should be for meeting their needs before being challenged on how to challenge without authority. Engage in small interactive roundtable discussions before each group presents its conclusions to the audience.
