Annotation

Ethics as an advantage in business

In business, everything revolves around measurable results. But the question of meaning cannot be answered by statistics. Let’s forget about business as a mere numbers game. In reality it is about the positive emotion conveyed, the repeated willingness of people to work with you, to use your products or services, to become part of your story.

The presentation will be in a form of a moderated conversation, moderated by Martin Vasquez.
