Paul Vragel, President of 4aBetterBusiness, will be speaking at the iNNOVATE conference, April 22-24, 2019, sponsored by iGrafx, on the topic “How to Painlessly Develop Immediate, Enthusiastic Buy-in to Change: A Transformation Story”. See the full conference agenda at http://igrafxinnovate.com Ian Hawkins, Editor of the Process Excellence Network, commented, ‘Paul’s presentation is a wake up call to remind leaders what’s really important: the expertise of their people, and their own responses. The big takeaway for me was that if people don’t feel safe to make change, they will never do it, and Paul gave plenty of real-life examples that made me feel there were plenty of ideas I could immediately put into practice. Paul promised immediate and enthusiastic change – and he delivered all the tools to make that work.’
