This week, Elijah is back with another Short Circuit and is joined by good friend and industry personality, Byron Rodgers.
In this episode the two discuss a wide range of industry topics, with a focus on how relationships are the key to longevity in executive protection and as Byron puts it…

Topics discussed include:
What is the difference between networking and relationship building? Why does it matter?
