The owner and president of Fourstar Connections, Phil Holman was recently invited by the Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MassMEP) to serve as a presenter at their “Unlocking the Lever for Growth: Tools & Resources for Manufacturers to Grow” event held on the 25th September, 2013 in Lawrence, MA.

Through the presentation titled “There is no magic bullet, it takes desire for change”, Mr. Holman shared his experience on how he created a transformational model for sustained growth of Fourstar Connections.
“Although it takes a desire to change, change does not come without some risk.
