Exploring Key Takeaways from Pinnacle 2022
If weren't able to attend Pinnacle 2022 (or even if you did!), join us for an engaging discussion of this year’s key Pinnacle takeaways. Each year at Pinnacle, during a final bonus session, we take time to sort through all of the ideas and information from the week. During this webinar, we’ll continue to explore some of those takeaways and expand on the discussion. With all of the new information and ideas to absorb during - and after - the conference, we’ll revisit the highlights and the “what’s next?”

Join Fitch & Associates Senior Partner and Pinnacle Program Co-Chair Anthony Minge, EdD, Writer and Broadcaster Rob Lawrence and Pinnacle EMS Leadership Award Winner Maria Beermann-Foat, PhD, for an interactive hour on this year’s major topics and takeaways from Pinnacle 2022.

Aug 16, 2022 01:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
