The Secrets of Collaboration Revealed


The Bob, Bob, Bob & Dean Show – The Secrets of Collaboration Revealed
Moderator, Bob Haas, Deschutes County
This session will provide an opportunity to learn about three very successful projects that have involved a high level of collaboration. In addition to providing information about the projects, the presenters will share their insights into what made these collaborative projects successful as well as offering advice on what situations to avoid. The session will also encourage attendees to share their success stories and the keys to their success. The session will be in a panel format and as the title suggests, we hope to make it entertaining.
