Chris Sargisson, Norfolk Chambers of Commerce
“To be agile in business, you need to be certain about where you’re going and what the endpoint looks like. You also need to have an idea of what’s coming and have the ability to respond to things quickly and well. You need to be able to disrupt, not necessarily changing what you do, but reenergising and reigniting the way you do it.”
