The Business Priorities Question via Incoming US Administration

Sjoe. As an Englishman, I’m certainly no hardcore gun-tooting bible bashing Republican. I may even be a social liberal.

Indeed, many internal dialogues can revolve around the current hottest must-do edict of a chief exec.

In addition, you should gauge from the swiftness and clarity of response from your contact both how cemented or communicated these are and how aligned to or involved with them they may be.

‘With so much to always get on with, my dear prospect, what’s the one top thing you’re mainly working on right now?’ would be a start…
