Nov 15, 2022

Halfway through Season 1 of Allies of the Industry, we’re looking back on the impactful lessons we’ve learned from our allies.

 We looked back on similar experiences we had with our guests, sectors that are new and unfamiliar to us, and fresh lessons we will be carrying with us from now on. 

Despite our many years of experience working in the financial services industry, we're still able to get incredible takeaways from our colleagues. That’s the great thing about having the right allies — you will continue to learn and grow as an individual, and as a professional. 

Join us in this podcast so you too can surround yourself with allies who have the same vision as yours.
