Following his attendance at the annual conference, Vishal commented "Strategic planning is an important driving force in today's dynamic business environment and in the future. In this age of information and globalization, knowledge of strategic planning will be an important asset for my future aspirations and I believe that the Association for Strategic Planning will be a good place to network with my future colleagues."
