Exceptional Insight for Project Developers

In just three episodes, I’ve been able to harness the experiences of guests with close to a century of experience in the Access realm for major projects. The stories of challenges and triumphs, relationships and their complexities, and the importance of early recognition of diverse interests at senior leadership levels for new developments are a must-listen for anyone in the Access space. As a professional in the Access space, I'm anxiously looking forward to future episodes and the stories from my peers. Great podcast.
