 “Taking part in the ICCC Equal Slice program gave us dedicated time to think about our business strategically and to make thoughtful plans for the coming year. It allowed us to interrupt the inertia of our day to day business activities to critically think about where we are and where we want to go. Being exposed to a higher level of learning was energizing and inspiring.”
