Dave Daniels, Dave Daniels Consulting (The Exit Exchange, Episode 8)
Dave Daniels of Dave Daniels Consulting says a strong diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) approach is far more than staffing and retention; it needs to be integrated into all aspects of a business. Dave joined “The Exit Exchange” to discuss why an effective DEI initiative not only strengthens company culture, competitive advantage, and the bottom line, but also pays off when it comes time to sell or transition the business. This edition of The Exit Exchange is co-hosted by David Shavzin and Bob Tankesley and is produced virtually from the North Fulton studio of Business RadioX® in Alpharetta.
