What Makes a Museum Magnetic?
Wednesday, May 14 Part of Magnetic: The Art And Science of Engagement, a four-part webcast series

Organizations become magnetic when their people, values, culture, program, strategy and operations are aligned with vision. Magnetism enables them to attract and retain core, brand, social and financial capital. This webcast provides a practical overview of the science of magnetism, the art of engagement and the six practices of magnetic museums: building core alignment, embracing 360 engagement, empowering others, widening the circle and inviting the outside in, becoming essential and building trust through high performance.
