growth-summit-2016-logoAt E.J. Basler one of pillars of growth is education and learning. 3 of our leadership team had the opportunity to attend the Growth Summit in Dallas, Texas last week. At the conference we learned so much from Verne Harnish and other renowned authors. Verne is the author of the book, Scaling Up ( which is a go-to book on building a dynamic, growing company that is significant in the precision machining industry.

Mark Cuban held court with us at the Maverick’s Arena.  Here’s a link to 12 more practical tips from Mark, succinctly captured in Kevin Daum’s Tuesday Inc. column – it’s worth the 2 minutes to scan his bullet points.
