MBA Masterclass with Adrian Stanciu - 17th of November

“I’m screwed!” - a friend said to me a while ago - “I am on the 4th budget this year and it's only February.”

Don’t we live in a new era but continue to behave, to educate our children and run our businesses by rules that have brought us success in the past? One of the maxims that helped me most in my management career was that "what brought you this far will not lead you there."
