Testimonials
I thought Ian Harper was excellent. With my Finance & Corporate Governance background, I felt that the total presentation was rewarding. Running a Deli these days or any retail business for that matter is very challenging with the likes of Coles and Woolworths at “war” with products and price. Nevertheless, I will pursue ‘The Challenge of Change’ much better prepared.
