•          The correct ways to implement change in your student organization (there are 5)
•          How to interact successfully with those you lead
•          How to leave a legacy and empower others to take your place
This presentation is jam packed with information that will change the way you lead. This program is funny, energy packed, and interactive. Perfect for student governments, student activities, leadership conferences, and more.
