The Entrepreneurial Exchange

Riding The Storm

Evening Exchange

It is said the true test of an entrepreneur is not in never failing, but in rising every time they fall.  In this session Andrew and Martin shared their own experiences of turnaround strategies, dealing with adverse market conditions and hanging on when the business environment becomes stormy.
