SCA kicked off it’s 2011-2012 season on September 16th with Lena Karunamaya’s presentation “Vision and Purpose – Strategic Planning for the Innovative Entrepreneur.”  With experience presenting lectures at international, national and regional conferences, Lena gave information and led exercises that helped SCA members to create, or just fine-tune, their action plan for achievement. Attendees learned effective approaches to strategic planning, achieving goals, and holding one’s self accountable in ways that promote business expansion.

Feedback from members was overwhelmingly positive, with reports of feeling motivated and inspired while having gained specific tools they can use immediately to begin reinventing their businesses and themselves as practitioners.

Thank you, Lena, for a great start to the 2011-2012 SCA season!

Please join us on Friday, September 16th, for “Vision and Purpose – Strategic Planning for the Innovative Entrepreneur.”  Lena Karunamaya will be our presenter.  For more information on this presentation and to register please visit the article about this presentation on our Meetings and Presentations Page.
