“The B2B Executive Playbook”
by: Sean Geehan

Think of B2B as a complement to…Continue
This book is for leaders and managers (aspiring leaders) continuing to look for ways to survive in our never ending, ever faster world. In short: Good book. Enjoyed it. Found it was inline with many of the issues contemporary business leaders increasingly face every day.
