 Creating a dialogue:

You must have the business case to get in the room, but don’t think that’s the only obstacle you’re facing. Use it to get into the room first. - Michael Bush


If you aren’t consistent in your messaging, you’ll be on the menu. - Ron Parker

Annual reporting:

Work collaboratively across all functional areas to tell your story in an annual report, not as an addendum. - Ron Parker


Be a “for all” leader. - Michael Bush
