Leadership and the Future Direction of the Profession
2020 February Seminar
February 29th, 2020 | 8:15am - 12:45pm
No matter what sector of dietetics and nutrition, we are all trying to move the profession forward. This could be through leading others, using the power of negotiation to bring value to the profession, or by keeping up-to-date of impending changes. Effective approaches in these areas can improve the impact that we have on our clients, co-workers, and the profession as a whole.
The information covered at the February Seminar will help enhance your skills in leadership, negotiation, and advocacy. The topics covered can be applied to all areas of dietetics and nutrition. We hope to see you there!
Breakfast will be provided!
