This year, at Exponential Southern California we’re hosting a series of Equipping Labs entitled “Leading the Next Generation.” These labs are free when you register for the conference! The track will include five labs, and you will walk away with practical tools for leading and reaching the next generation. Below are the descriptions for each lab.
