SIM Executive Leadership Forum 2016

May 5th, 2016 SIM Women Executive Leadership Forum

Making the shift from having a great idea to actually bringing that idea to fruition is a daunting feat, but the shift from growing that start up organization to actually LEADING it can be even more of a challenge.  Our panel will discuss how to navigate the transition from doer to leader, as well as considerations regarding creating culture, and securing funding.
