What’s Wrong with ERG’s?

with Carlo Dela Fuente, Amy Keller | Moderator: Denis Sgouros

We’ll be bringing together a panel of experts to answer your ERG questions. You’ll be able to anonymously pose your questions. Come prepared to dig deep into your biggest concerns about your ERG or the system as a whole. We plan to leave our titles, egos and preconceived notions of ERG’s at the door, and would encourage you to do the same.
