This a very meaningful amount of work that required everyone’s contributions. There were significant change management challenges and a lot of time required to execute on training, portals, communications and content. Thank you very much to everyone for your contributions. But a very special thank you to Jennifer, whose change and project management skills are second to none and helped us both execute on all the tiny details and pull together the big picture.
