At Spark the Change Barbara is speaking on the Ripple Effect panel where she will share her unique approach to an individually empowered team culture that is highly effective, fun and engaging.
It can just take one person, one decision, one team to create a positive ripple effect that can have far reaching results.
This session brings together a panel of small business owners that have created ripple effects by the decisions they’ve made on their journeys.
Fundamental business activities such as . . .
– Who they recruit
– How they support their team

– The ethos of their businesses and the way they’re perceived
