It’s not enough to have the right information. It’s not enough to know more than anyone else in the room. It’s not enough to be right. To be effective, to have impact in your community and to lead your field, you must also be influential.

This… is where Dan Gregory comes in.

You have the information. You have the intelligence. Now, let’s help you achieve the influence you deserve!
