The Power of Trust –

The One Thing That Changes Everything

Join us for our lunch session on Wednesday June 3, 2015 at the Four Seasons Hotel,  791 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, BC on the Power of Trust.

Trust is a financial and business driver. Those individuals, teams and organizations that foster trust stand to gain in a big way. It’s a question of slowing down to speed up. Then everything’s faster and easier, and less costly. Not to mention friendlier. The path to earning trust involves dispelling the myths, avoiding the traps, and bringing out what’s best in you and others. So everybody wins. Everything gets better. That’s the power of trust.

Please join us for this session for insight on the power of trust, the ways of building it and how to use it in an organizational setting.
