Relationships Over Transactions: How to Deliver Value in a Frictionless World

These changes have transformed how consumers interact with brands and products. Going forward, ask yourself: how do you stay relevant in this fast-moving world? How can you build loyalty when there are so many options? What value can you continue to deliver so that your organization isn’t left behind? Read More >

Yet, women are now the dominant force in small business ownership and are succeeding in industries that were once taboo. Because women have different sets of life and work experiences than men, they are able to provide their employer, team members and customers with diverse perspectives, opinions, and strategic thinking.
