"This book stands out of the crowd of recent design/business books because it is so specific and actionable. I have found myself recommending it to colleagues and clients when it is time for them to plan important leadership offsides, meetings and events. Bringing people together is a time-consuming and expensive endeavor, and when you do that, you owe it to yourself to ensure the most impact possible. This book will help you do that." - Dave Gray "Thought the canvas has a strong resemblance to other canvases you might be associated with, I think you will find this one of great use. It should be in everyone's toolkit."- Business901 "It's a must have for every event planner."- Frankwatching
