CANCELED: HBP’s Nonprofit Bites: February, MD

February 12, 2019

This event has since been canceled due to inclement weather.

Join HBP and the wonderful ladies from Hyve this February for a two-hour workshop on thinking strategically as we tackle the “to do’s” of 2019!

Thinking Strategically When There’s A Lot To Do,

Presented by Hyve

When we are bogged down remembering all we need to do, it’s hard to “look up” and see where we are and where we want to go. This two-hour workshop provides a framework to help us get a different view – to enhance strategic thinking, even amid full plates and busy schedules. Through interaction with one another, we introduce and explore tools and techniques to translate strategic thinking into action.
