On Demand Webinar: The Right Way of Death, There is Hope - Presenter, Eric LayerA
The current uncertainty around death care is not the sector’s fault, but it is their problem. The calling is hamstrung by mixed messages. It’s tough for a modern bereavement professional to decide whether to be a leader or a follower, salesperson or confidant. But there is a right way to do death, and funeral professionals are experts. The future of the business will require a recognition of that truth so that those who work in death care can reclaim the soul of the calling and guide families with care and confidence.

This will help you to define your purpose, harness your power and boost your effectiveness. In this keynote, we will explore four ways to maximize your potential so that you create the story you want to tell about yourself.
