She added that, Devant had a mission to help businesses use the right contracts to help them build great value to their customers.
It is so important that you are being transparent with your Contract to your customers so that both parties can set a proper expectation with one another.
Other key topics we talked about are:
- Getting the best contract for your employees and how to protect yourself from others who try to poach your key staff.
