Your Winning Campaign: Start to Finish in 90 Minutes
Master campaign strategist, Stephen Davis, gives a fast-paced, eye-opening overview of just what a campaign is, and what it is not. Starting with the basic principle that, “At its core, a campaign is nothing more than a list-building exercise,” Davis demonstrates how this principle applies to any campaign, whether it’s for school board, council or congress.
This presentation is a Campaign Training Academy favorite, and is not to be missed!
