Join Laura as she shares the mic with consultant Michael Houlihan, social innovator Janet Salazar, and cleantech expert Diana Yousef. Listen in as they explore the intricacies of helping audiences understand their message, the challenges they faced when communicating their mission, and how they are focusing on refining and building momentum for the future.  


Here are a few things you’ll learn during this conversation:

  • How to help your audience understand the value of the problem
