Where the Vending Industry Meets on the East Coast



'The Change Decision'
ACE's Lunch and Learn Session #2
Tuesday, November 17, 12:00-1:30pm


Thanks for joining us for an interactive session with The Change Decision on how to get you and your leadership team clear on the change ahead of you and how to communicate it.  The session showed participants how to use the change Story, a tool designed for changes large and small, that can help you handle any change that you are facing.  At the end of the session, attendees received a copy of The Change Story along with instructions to help guide you through using it.

More about The Change Decision:
Introducing a change? Are you impacting a lot of people? How do you keep everyone aligned on what's important to communicate? It can get out of hand quickly, but with a little prep, you can get ahead of the change curve and guide it. The Change Decision will showed participants how to use a simple and highly effective communication tool to keep you, your team, and your stakeholders aligned on what's changing, why, when, how, etc. This works for small and large changes of all types. Don't have all the answers yet? That's okay, too. This simple tool will help you find them!

Make plans to attend future ACE Lunch and Learn sessions to see some familiar faces of those vending industry friends you have missed these last few months AND have a chance to WIN PRIZES.
