LUNCH & LEARN: Completing Big Projects — The Journey from Dream to Delivery, with Don Daglow

  • VenturePad 1020 B Street San Rafael CA 94901 USA (map)

What's that big professional project you'd love to do?

It might be a small solo effort or a big team initiative, but it's important to you. Are you working on it now, or does it keep getting put off? Are there big obstacles holding you back?

Don Daglow is a veteran startup CEO (and San Rafael native) who works with executives and companies in North America and Europe on managing major initiatives. In this one-hour session we'll walk through ten questions to ask yourself about your next big planned or existing project. The answers you give yourself will provide a framework for next steps. Many past participants in these sessions have emerged with new ideas and realigned priorities.

In just an hour you'll have the chance to think through your current plans. You'll answer some familiar questions and others you may never have heard before, and your answers will be completely confidential and only for yourself. You're likely to leave with new ideas that you can act on that same day.

You will take away:

* A clear, realistic vision of what you hope to do

* New perspectives on how to manage risk

* A new way to resolve arguments that can make team projects stand still

* A simple way to improve financial projections

* A stronger connection between your personal passions and your priorities for work
