Pete Digs Deep is BACK with another killer panel!

Updated: Sep 30

The captivating Pete Digs Deep residency, in partnership with Kluster, is back at it again this week discussing ‘Planning for the Impossible: Getting Strategic Planning Right’ with a brilliant panel including Yetunde Hofmann, Alexandra Charters Zubko, Dr Mike Baxter!

The In This Together residency exploded onto the scene last month with its first session on 'trust' and 'leadership fit for the 21st Century', and has returned to ponder the ever-important notion of ‘Strategy’! They will wrestle with our inability to define this often vague term and how best to implement it, particularly in times of crisis. This discussion will not only touch on the broader picture thinking of employee focused strategy but also get into the granular detail of how to build a comprehensive strategic plan for your business, regardless of your size.

Be sure to register to take part in the discussion on Wednesday 15 July at 4pm UK time. Pete Digs Deep takes place monthly and makes up part of the In This Together Sales & Marketing Leaders track.
