CAREER DEV | 120 VC Influence to Transform (2-Day Event)

Strategy = Business Acumen

You don't have to be a rockstar or big boss to influence and deliver the necessary and expected results.

You may or may not have positional authority, but you have been charged with leading a transformation project with a budget, launch date, and aggressive KPIs.

Don't freak out.  While changing the status quo is hard and making change stick can be crazy hard, it doesn't have to be.

In this workshop, we explore the relationship between leadership and transformation. 120VC founder and CEO J Scott shares his the people-first, purpose-driven, and outcome-obsessed practices used by 120VC leaders for over two decades to deliver transformational projects for Fortune 500 companies with near 100% mass-market or end-user adoption on day one.
