Which of These Publicity Methods Was The Most Successful?

My sessions were designed for a specific audience of students. I really was not trying to draw anyone extra. I had hoped other teachers might get interested and ask questions so my students could go to their rooms with a presentation but that did not happen.

Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

The students were excited about the new learning and also happy to sport their new buttons! It is my best hope that they will consider learning more about their own thinking as a result of this short time reviewing the power of our brain.
