What the chief revenue officer says:

“I’ve been in our industry now longer than I care to remember. However, what that time has taught me is to surround myself with people that add the most value and recognise the right things to say at the right time.

“Call it emotional intelligence, experience, or whatever, but I’ve worked with bClear now for a number of years, and they are absolutely our chosen partner and always get the messaging and timing right! They understand the dynamics of our market, the nuances of our business and importantly how to marry the two together perfectly.”
