Something Special for July, Workshops!

Half-Day Workshops

Aspiration has crafted this slate of two half-day workshops to provide space, time, fuel, and support for hands-on learning. We find that sometimes the biggest factor holding organizations back from implementing more effective tech processes is not having the time to work through the issues.

Give yourself this block of time to work on creating and improving organizational assets. Join us for either Four Processes for High Impact Online Communications, Email Newsletter Tune Up, or treat yourself to both! Also, don’t forget about the 1-hour, live seminar we are holding in July, Online Advocacy Tactics.
