TO FIX THE COMPANY
Instead, they invite CEOs to ask ‘What’s wrong with our company if we can’t attract, retain and promote the majority of today’s educated talent and connect with the majority of consumers in an ever-expanding range of sectors?’
IT TAKES LEADERSHIP, LEADERSHIP, LEADERSHIP
20-first advises companies on modern leadership and organisational effectiveness: global trends in gender, why balance matters, how to implement it, and how to unlock new market opportunities and increase customer satisfaction.
