Hope in business


Bruce Heesterman shares from his experience as a CEO and how there is hope even in difficult business circumstances. He has seen people made redundant, re-invent themselves, and think that was the best thing that had ever happened to them, because it liberated them to follow their dream.

He sees his job as CEO to encourage people, help them through difficult situations, and tell them how they are making a difference. He tries to speak hope into situations in business every day.
