Case Study

“These past few years have been challenging for us to stay on top of all the changes and keep leadership abreast of what they mean. National Journal’s stakeholder education series has been critical to my success. Trusting NJ to give my leadership team the “Cliff notes” on how Washington works saves me time but, more importantly, it helps us all move forward in partnership on important strategic initiatives that will move our corporation forward.”
