John Griffin: Will facilitate the Ideas Exchange Workshop immediately following John Maxwell's last segment. This will be done over lunch and will be a powerful time for reflection, asking questions, creating pair or small group discussions with other leaders and using John Maxwell’s “A.C.T.” method of getting the most out of your learning so that you will walk out of the event with an actionable plan and new ideas.
