Speaking in Wellington this week

As some of you know, I’m working with Pete Canalichio on a new book about how brands can rethink their growth strategies.

On Thursday evening, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on how the strategies of global brands can be applied to businesses of all sizes looking for growth and profitability in today’s super-competitive environments.
