Pizza can be delicious, when made well. But too many toppings, the wrong combination of ingredients, or too little time in the oven can drive away even the most ardent pizza lover. 

What has that got to do with supporting your subject matter experts? 

Join us as Irene Stern Frielich leads an interactive discussion about the value of the SME, what to look for in an SME, and typical challenges we face when working with SMEs. Irene will share five secrets to successful SME partnerships (and making a good pizza).
