Chief Operation Officer
"I'm constantly asking this one question: How can we make things better? No matter what stage you're at in your company's life cycle, or what industry you work in, everyone around you can benefit from new ideas. Don't be afraid to think outside of the box – just because something works doesn't mean it can't be better." So: "How can I make things better ?"
