  “We wanted the tips to be fun and light-hearted, but at the same time offer solid solutions for some of the real challenges Alpha leaders encounter”, said Marti Clark and Margene Vessel, innovators of Alpha Tips.  “We take many of the tips from the Alpha Training event and the Alpha Director's Handbook, but we are also receiving great tips from Alpha Advisors and practitioners in the field who have discovered creative ways to solve problems and are sharing them with us.”
