Beginning with the 12 trends business leaders must be aware of, and sharing how each will transform every facet of business, Jack will explore humility as a means of embracing the new. He will provide concrete actions and specific decision-making questions all leaders must ask themselves today, to create a successful tomorrow. According to Jack, the future is incredibly bright.
