The battle that ensued gripped the global imagination with somewhat of an underdog story, but what underpins this narrative is the power of perception to rapidly transform the value of something.

2021: A State of Optimism?

on 26-Jan-2021 09:43:01 By | Shammah Banerjee | 0 Comments | Thought Leadership
