Jun 26, 2022

In this episode, I interview Bob Wiesner, the Managing Partner of The Artemis Partnership based in New Jersey, United States. Bob has set up his consulting company to help entrepreneurs improve their new business win rates and accelerate organic growth.

With over 25 years of experience as a business consultant, Bob decided to create his own company and help others through his knowledge and experiences. The Artemis Partnership was established in 2019 and has been running for over 3 years. Became a global bid, pitch consulting, and sales training to enable professionals to drive sector-leading win rates of over 70% with 14 contractors.

Bob has said that growing a small business requires focus and self-discipline to accomplish the tasks on time and excel. So he says, “As a small business owner, focus on the discipline around knowing what you should be doing and knowing what you should not be doing. Not confusing the two and sticking with the important stuff.”
