Why is diversification the #1 growth strategy


This is the first podcast of a new series, "Leaders in Energy", chaired by Stuart Broadley, CEO of the EIC.  In this first episode, we will be exploring the latest insights in the development of diversification for companies in the energy sector after what has been a very difficult period for business growth and how some of them have managed to not only stay afloat but how they actually managed to thrive from this unprecedented situation.
