Getting the Balance Right

Balance – and getting it right A productive, entertaining, and inspiring time was had by members and guests at Friday’s breakfast meeting of The Boardroom Network, hosted at Chilworth Manor. If there was one theme weaving the experience and the keynote presentations together, it was ‘balance’. Chilworth Manor balanced the need for speed with the […]

Recommendations that Rock
