EBD Academy brings executive-level leadership skills to you

Executive education is a critical component of business effectiveness. Business development senior management, executive management, and management teams perform at the highest level of an organization and often take on the greatest amount of risk to ensure their company succeeds. Business development (BD) executives are often considered experts in their business area, and are often mentors to junior employees, giving them the best of their hard-won insider knowledge. But who mentors the experts?
