GiveMore.com and Work it, Richmond are partnering to give one Virginia business a ‘Year of Better Meetings.’ Work it, Richmond is a new daily newsletter and website targeting small businesses in Central Virginia. In a campaign to raise awareness for Work it, Richmond and GiveMore.com, one person who subscribes to the Work it, Richmond newsletter during the promotional timeframe will receive a package that includes books, short videos and meeting packages designed to help kick off or support a meeting, goal or project.
Based on the creative content by Sam Parker, bestselling author of 212 the extra degree and co-founder of the company, GiveMore.com is committed to developing messages and material that help leaders kick-off and support their necessary meetings in a fresh and more meaningful way.
