Pre-Conference and Companion Programs
"Our Maritime conference for medical laboratory technologists featured Peter Davison offering a pre-conference workshop called BRAVO (Building Relationships and Valuing Others) to a sold-out audience.

Peter's BRAVO presentation united us with practical skills to work together as a team, strategies to cope with stress, and tools to more effectively communicate. The best part was we had lots of fun doing it!!! Thanks Peter!"- Rosalie Richard, Conference Co-chair, Maritech 2008
