I’ve had the pleasure of participating in The Alternative Board (TAB) Hawaii. I was privileged to openly exchange issues and perspectives with a team of very accomplished businessmen and businesswomen. The TAB forums were an invaluable experience to get candid and insightful feedback from powerful leaders in our community. Valerie is always prepared, an excellent facilitator and brings a lot of insightful content for everyone to benefit from. I would highly recommend TAB for any business owner interested in taking their business to new levels.
