Roger Rickard is the guy organizations call when they need help with advocacy.

In this Insider Series video, Rickard urges his fellow colleagues to do a better job of getting others to understand the importance of meetings and clear up any misconceptions about the profession. “Meetings are the largest example of knowledge transfer for adults in the world.
