“The Network Leadership Training Academy was my greatest experience for professional growth and new learning this year. It was exhilarating to discover other network leaders who were dealing with the same issues we wrestle with. We found many resources and sessions highly applicable to our work. We learned how network mapping could provide practical benefits to understand network dynamics. We strongly recommend the NLTA to others seeking to lead networks effectively: Your community of peers and a rich source of learning await you!”
— David R Hackett, Senior Network Advisor, visionSynergy
“At the NLTA, I learned how support networks are a valuable method for cultivating ideas, sharing connections, and building community. At this intimate conference, there was the opportunity to learn from the presenters as well as from the other participants. I use the data all the time and implemented some of the break out activities with my clients and the networks that I manage almost immediately.”
— Amy Rosenblum, Founder and Principal, Cultivation Center
