“There’s a lot more clarity we can bring to our B2B programs to make sure that people understand, like, yes, when I do this, I will be able to have these opportunities. And when I put a value proposition out there that the customers are going to get chances to do X, Y, and Z, I need to make sure that these are being fulfilled.” – Liz Richardson
