Relevant and helpful advice for B2B & B2C Business Executives

A really refreshing podcast that takes great care to ensure it is relevant for the vast majority of Business Builders.
I really like that the hosts actively acknowledge that one shoe doesn’t fit all and that when developing business and relationships it is fundamentally important to understand if your are in the B2B or B2C sector, if you are dealing with services, commodity products or bespoke offerings that have sales funnels that can be multiple years long.
I recommend that everyone starts at the beginning and works through the back catalogue.
There’s something in there for everyone!
