The Business of Recognition - Ro Crosbie on Being “The Best”

It's really, really nice to be recognized by outsiders as being the best in your business. But, beyond the joy of winning an award is the reality of what that says to not only your competition, your team and your current and future customers/clients. Then too...there is the pressure of retaining your standing. We talk about that and more with the President/CEO of Tero International Ro Crosbie. We think you'll enjoy the message.
