Calling local entrepreneurs! Learn how to be great, not just good

So how do you do it? Become great. Not just “good enough” but have real impact. Make your mark?

Local lean commercialisation and growth expert Brian Dorricott will show you how. This session is a must for any entrepreneur if:

1.      You want to be great (not just good);

2.      You need tools to save time and emotional energy; and

3.      You want to know how you stack up against the “greats” of business.

By attending you will come away knowing how to empower yourself and those you work with. That’s the first step to being “great”. Australia needs you to do this!

Even better, a lucky attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Traction – the handbook for EOS.
