What keeps business leaders and owners counting sheep at night? The BIG three reasons for insomnia relate to:

  • Money —“Do I have enough to cover payroll?”
  • People —“Are we working on the right things?”
  • Execution —“Can I follow through on my strategy?”

Regardless of your company’s size, these three critical areas will make or break your ongoing success. Our local panel of innovators will share their challenges and provide valuable lessons that will help you remain relevant to thrive in an ever changing market.
