“Relevance is not something an institution can assign by fiat. Your work matters when it matters to people – when they deem it relevant, not you.” – Nina Simon

We all want our organizations to be relevant. But what does that really mean? In this workshop, author and museum director Nina Simon will share inspiring examples and practical theories on how to make your business more valuable to a larger and more diverse audience.

Relevance isn’t about what’s trending, it’s about unlocking meaning in people’s hearts. Join Nina for a thought-provoking conversation about how to make your business matter more to more people.
