6 Basic Ideas for CEOs To Better Communicate Their Message
One of the most important lessons Irv Rothman learned from his 32 years of running customized leasing and financing for HP, Compaq Financial Services and AT&T Capital, was the importance of using communications to make the potentially unwieldy company seem smaller and more interconnected.
