’10 minutes on growth’ with Paul Andrews, Experiential, Brand Marketing & Sponsorship Consultant

’10 minutes on growth’ with Kathleen Warden, Director of Conference Sales at Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC)

When I hear the word ‘growth’, nature is the first thing that comes to my mind. But then I began to ponder the similarities and differences between growth in nature and growth in business.
