  1. Communicate: What are the top priorities and what are the secondary ones?

  2. Get agreement on the major needs.

Fortunately, everyone bought into the plan. We knew had great products to show, and we learned that we had a great licensor/ partner who understood our urgency

If your licensing team has urgent business needs, let’s have a conversation!
