P.S. One more thing to help you decide…
In the “selection stage”, when decision-makers are choosing with whom to work and how to invest their resources, mediocrity wins… Unless superior projects, products, and services are pitched and sold effectively.
My approach may be different from what you’ve heard before.
But people who are good in a room hear the word “Yes” a lot!
You can, too!
