Their objective is to help every business leader have a repertoire of stories that they can use to have more impact, more influence and be more engaging communicators. Some of their amazing guests include John Sculley, the former CEO of Apple and current biotech investor and Sir Charles Masefield, former CEO of BAE Aerospace.
