Dr. Bob had this to say about the 1/2 day session...

“In my 40 year Wall Street Career I have personally been involved in hundreds of strategic planning meetings, offsite brainstorming sessions, tactical planning sessions, and scenario analysis studies. This KPMG Ignition (Virtual Session) event was not only the best session I have ever been involved in, it was better than all of my previous ones COMBINED!

If you ever have the opportunity to participate in one of these KPMG Ignition sessions I implore you to do it. If you do I guarantee you will come out of it with a better understanding of what your business is really all about, a clear and actionable vision for your future, and the renewed energy to get there!”
