It’s a win-win for all parties #STinsights @CTOStraightTalkhttps://t.co/ZaBPQkRuBd— Antonio Figueiredo (@afigueiredo) October 28, 2021

So is there actually a formula to success?

Before we wrap up another insightful session, let’s understand the dynamics of making the new partnership ecosystem work.
The new collaborative business models force us out of just thinking of ourselves. We must think about not just customers, but suppliers and others in the supply chain #STinsights— Dr. Linda Cureton (@curetonl) October 28, 2021
So this is how YOU can make the most of your partnerships!
