We just finished the new 2-hour Springboard program and I was impressed at the speed and quality. They brought together spot-on advisors for a panel review of our business, covering everything from sales execution best practices to financing strategies. The feedback and critical thinking was spot-on and was exactly what we needed. Thank you Connect!
