8:30 Cultivating The Right Mind-Set For Business Growth, Sharon DeMascia- International Speaker and Business Psychologist
Many factors impact on business success but the role that our individual attitudes play in bringing about success or failure is perhaps the most overlooked aspect. Psychology Research has explored the individual elements that contribute to business success and has identified that there is a particular mind-set that facilitates success. Sharon De Mascia will introduce the underlying neuropsychology behind a Growth Mind-Set and look at the factors that help facilitate business success.
