First & Fast: Outpace Your Competitors, Lead Your Markets & Accelerate Growth with Stuart Cross – 20th May 2016

For the past 30 years, business leaders have been exhorted to move faster and adopt a “ready, fire, aim” approach to the growth of their business. As the level of change and turbulence increases in all markets, all organizations must adapt—quickly!—or risk decline and decay. But what are the real behaviors, processes, and techniques that are critical to lead your organization at pace without creating confusion, frustration, and unnecessary risk? My guest Stuart Cross is a consultant, coach, speaker and author who helps world class companies dramatically accelerate profit growth. Since its launch in 2006 his firm, Morgan Cross Consulting, has attracted clients including Avon Cosmetics, Alliance Boots, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Aimia Inc. Join us for a show where Stuart will share powerful strategies and pragmatic tools from his late book ‘First and Fast…’ to enable you to increase the pace of your business and accelerate growth year after year.
