How to Grow a Global Business One Relationship at a Time: Isabel Banerjee Episode 42

Isabel Banerjee is one of those women that I have had the privilege of working with through NAWBO. I literally worked with her for almost a year before I finally got the story of how she went from a young single mom to running a multi-million dollar global consulting firm in the chemical industry. Isabel is one of those women business owners that I love. She talks about how she built a company by showing up, recognizing opportunity and building relationships. Now, she has moved to Arizona where she launched Phoenix GroYourBiz, a peer board of directors, and her latest venture, The Encore Catalyst. Take a listen and check out her bio below.
