"Once trained in the Radiant model, we constantly ask ourselves who are we trying to reach, what do we want them to do, what messages/actions will move them to act in our favor, and how will we know if we have succeeded. Once internalized, the model constantly guides me and our staff to channel our collective energy both more efficiently and very effectively to win in the public policy arena."
Buddy Gill, Chief Advocacy Officer Texas Credit Union League
