11:40 am - 12:00 pm Vision Board Takeaway Time! What are you taking back to the office?

Saying goodbye is hard, especially after an inspirational three days at HR Retail with old and new friends and colleagues alike. We’re hoping this wrap-up will give you the closure needed to package all of your takeaways with a neat little bow to take back to work on Monday morning. These free flow discussions will be your chance to take a deep dive into the specific areas you came to discuss and what the future of patient experience looks like to you. We’ll use markers and poster to create a collaborative vision board.
