Scheduling Keynotes And Workshops for 2017

Just a quick note that we’ve started scheduling workshops and keynotes for 2017. We’re excited to be at the Habit Summit on April 4-5 with Nir Eyal, for example.

It seems like 2017 is a long way from now, but it will be here before you know it. If you’d like Susan or Guthrie to come give a talk or workshop let us know. We’re putting together some brand new topics that we think you will like.

(And if you want to try and squeeze something in before 2016 is over contact us at info@theteamw.com or call at 847-909-5946. Our 4th quarter is pretty full, but we’ll see if we can get you in.)
