AGENDA FOR OCTOBER 15

VISION: THE SECRET TO ACCELERATED COMPANY GROWTH
11:05 pm ET
Dan McDonald, Co-Founder, Business Improvement Solutions

Did you know a clear vision is as important for a company of one as it is for a company of 2,000 employees? A vision is not only for developing breakthrough new products or services in large organizations. A vision can be a clear mental image of the future state of your organization. Hewlett and Packard only had a vision to be a great company when they first started.

Extremely successful companies of all sizes use vision as the driving force for organizational growth as it can inspire people to join their team, work hard, and outperform their competition. Learn how to use vision to accelerate your company's growth, no matter how big it is.
