Day 0 sign-up

Day 0 sign-up

We will use a framework guidance approach to help people choose tools that will work to achieve goals and serve needs they have.
We plan to ask people to 'sign-up' for sessions they want to attend by thinking about their contexts, work and goals they want to achieve by using KS tools. They will be asked to give top 4 priorities and we will try to get them into their top two sessions
