Once a draft plan was devised and an action plan developed, the team presented to the client who made amendment to suit new developments and budgetary issues. After a few days of client deliberation, the decision was taken to approve the draft plan, budgets and dates finalized. The planning team then moved on to prepare for the session – obtaining logistics and materials; confirming booked vendors. With the check list drawn, nothing was left amiss.  The team was poise to execute a successful two-day session.

The objectives were clear and the team set out to implement activities that ensure the desired results.
