Dealing with Disruption: Will you be the Disruptor or the Disrupted?

According to Australian Bureau of Statistics one of the biggest challenges for businesses is to stick with it long enough to make enough money. The failure rate is also attributed to a lack of financial understanding and lack of management ability.

In fact, Business Women Australia’s Core Data Research confirmed that many female business leaders saw achieving business growth to be both the biggest macro challenge and biggest opportunity in the new financial year.

Add to that the changes being felt across many industries – disruption is well and truly upon us.
