Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
Great team bonding through the brain quiz morning tea - boosted morale and team spirit. Created more awareness amongst our direct health professionals audience and potentially more referrals to our practice. More exposure for our practice through sharing our BAW initiatives on social media.
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
A poster for BAW 2021 would have been awesome - I saw you did it in the previous years and we definitely would have used a material like this to advertise our initiatives.
