Making it to the Top and Staying There

@ VOL 16 ON FEB 18, 2016

Reaching the summit of your business success - and staying there requires more grit and determination than technology or reimagined workspace. Speaker Jeff Russell's PechaKucha blends what enabled the speaker to stay a successful consultant for over 28 years with what he has learned from the successes - and failures - of his clients. Making it to your mountain top is more about your spirit and resilience than your LinkedIn network, the number of your Twitter followers, or how flat your organization is. In this talk learn what it might take to climb your mountain and what you need to do to stay on top!
