In our fourth GALA Special Session, we’ll get together to explore the many dos and don’ts for leading through a crisis. While the internet offers plenty of information on this subject in general, we’ll take an industry-specific look at the topic. We invite you to bring your questions and your knowledge and connect with your professional community for insight, support, and inspiration.
