Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
Because of BAW, people came to us for brain skills training. It was a great event especially when knowing a lot of people have a sense of awareness with what's going on with their brain and to search for an answer (the underlying skills problem).
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
Always be well prepared and have all the materials ready.
