The B.E.S.T. Course was a singular and special time for me…an innovation process of thinking about the future, this brainstorming process requires an outstanding Faculty Team to inspire people, open them minds, and I’ve never seen one team so prepare for this. My phrase after the course is “If you can feel it, see it, dream it, you can do it.
