Show Notes

This is a very special episode of the 6 Star Business podcast, as we welcome back to the microphone a previous guest, Michael Haynes!

We purposefully arranged to have this conversation with him so that we could hear from Michael his thoughts on where we are in business in 2022, what’s really going on with the ‘great resignation’, what are the biggest pressures businesses are facing, and much more.

It was a wonderful conversation, and I’m really grateful to have Michael’s insights and wisdom.

My co-host today is the fabulous Joanne Brooks.

Here’s a summary of what we discussed:

08:35 - Michael’s view of a 6 Star Business

10:30 - Identifying the decision makers

14:07 - when the marketing simply isn’t working

19:15 - the ‘dark funnel’ not many know about

29:00 - why automation is not the answer

31:45 - the challenges senior leaders face

35:56 - why collaboration matters

49:45 - the shift in focus from the Big 4

plus a lot more…

It’s a fabulous, high-energy show!
