The Extreme Business 100 – A Gentle Reminder

In last month’s newsletter I announced the availability of limited places in The Extreme Business 100 community for 2024.

I want to take the opportunity to thank those who have requested a 30-minute no obligation Zoom chat with me – Phillippa has been busy booking those conversations and I’m looking forward to meeting you all.

If you would like to learn more about next year’s programme – in just 5 minutes – and book a complimentary call – please just follow the link to our landing page here.
