What our members and sponsors are saying.
What I have experienced with GPNP is the amazing workshops, webinars, using the Catchafire pilot for 17 projects for The Stepping Stone Pathways as well as utilizing the Executive-in-Residence program. The GPNP Summit means that people who are not able to attend in person can attend to virtual webinars and still benefit from some of the informational sessions that are being offered. During the summit [we had] sessions that teach you HOW to achieve your goal; it is invaluable to grow and expand your business.
