In this webinar, the presenter will provide the participants with examples of the trials and tribulations of one financial leader as seen through his own experiences in government service.  He will share the unusual events and the sometimes entertaining results.   A participant will be treated to a few inspiring stories about and quotes from federal/state/national figures designed to foster a greater appreciation of the specific skills, actions, and results that help one deal with day to day adversity.  Participants will be provided a list of tools needed to succeed in government financial management. The purpose of the session is to encourage participants to foster enthusiastic but realistic approaches to day to day events in their professional careers and help participants maintain a focus in their careers on those significant elements necessary for success. Finally, the discussion will focus on how AGA can help participants cope with adversity and take advantage of challenging opportunities.
