As part of the work I do with the Canadian Professional Sales Association, I recently got a chance to talk with Nicholas Crowe, Director of Professional Development. The interview was published on our sister title’s podcast, the HRchat show from The HR Gazette.
Nick talked about his role at the CPSA and how the association is helping to revolutionize frontline professions.
