What can business tycoons teach you?

Why attend?

Business success takes strategic thinking, problem solving and good decision making. No matter how long you’ve been in business, there will always be more decisions to make, opportunities to assess and problems to solve. Business Series doesn’t just try to lay out a step-by-step blueprint for success but also helps you become better thinkers.

Another advantage of attending the series is the glimpse that you can get into the blood, sweat and tears that go into making of a great business and the human emotions that are revealed by businessmen who have made the journey from good to great. It is not always smooth sailing on the way to create a sustainable business.
