HiBEAM is presenting the Going for Growth Leadership Leadership Panel Series to address the issues that influence an entrepreneur’s capacity to grow the business. What would it take for businesses to develop and implement their strategies for growth and become world-class companies with global customer?
Three key competencies stand out that enable this: Knowing the market well and developing a strategy that is tested and honed; Leadership that is able to lead and manage the team; and the ability to harness funding via various vehicles including sales.
For "Going for the Market", three outstanding business leaders will inspire and inform the entrepreneurs about what they have done to identify and prepare to enter the markets; build and implement their go-to-market strategies; anticipate and overcome challenges and barriers. They will share their insights and experiences on being guided by a value system that governs decision-making for market growth.
