What's your (new) financial persona?

Where do you fit when looking at diversifying future revenue streams: Do you lean toward a defensive position - reverting to your core business; or an offensive position - focusing on growth strategies that will generate new and diversified revenue streams and capture margin? This challenge has taken on a new urgency in a post-COVID-19 economy. In this session, you'll explore potential paths for organizational recovery that depend less on traditional core revenue streams. Rather, you'll be challenged to think about co-owning margins with new partners and solutions, examine what it would take to capture the equivalent NPR from strategic diversification, and create a framework for the future that is metric as well as outcome-based.
