When Jonathan returned home from his first day at school, his mother asked, “What did you learn?” Jonathan replied, “Not enough, I have to go back tomorrow.”
Do you feel like that too? It seems that we can never quite catch up with what we need to know. Not only do we have to learn more, we have to learn it faster.
PDP launched eNews as a way to speed up learning: (1) to share how other client organizations are using and applying PDP; (2) to present information so you can quickly grasp the advances in PDP programs, processes and technology; and (3) to provide a means for you to immediately communicate your perspective on what works and on what may need more of our attention.

To capitalize on this growth bonanza, we made a business decision to convert from independent distributors to an employee district manager marketing and delivery system in the city zone.
