Reimagining Funding & Support as a Team of One

Mar 5, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

How do you make an impact without a team, without a budget for staff, and without buy-in? Hear from two leaders as they discuss how they formed a unique team to innovate, grow, and accomplish incredible goals together. The discussion will focus on a rural education collaborative but is applicable to any team of one that is looking to transform from a solo operator with minimal local backing to emerging as a recognized national example. The conversation will highlight the crucial role played by external technical assistance providers who had to be dedicated executives without an internal team.
