Variety is the spice of event life!

I THOROUGHLY enjoyed the insight, educated expertise and candor in this week's episode with Kawania Wooten. Crisis Management isn’t a sexy topic but it’s a necessary topic, not only due to the covid19 pandemic but beyond. So many tangible nuggets and real life scenarios that can apply and elevate each business owner that tunes in. Thanks for sharing!!
