Are you an MHD in your organisation? 
 
What is an MHD you may ask? It is an acronym for a Multi Hatted Director.

Do you ever feel like you can’t see the wood for the trees? Does the fate of your business ever feel like it’s been left to the whims of chance? Do you ever feel like, no matter how hard you try to maintain control of your business’ operations, marketing strategy and cash flow, you’re sitting atop a bucking bronco waiting for the inevitable moment when it throws you loose?
