    IRRI Nordic Cut – Best Client Relations, Salesperson or Product Manager

    Stockholm (NordSIP) – In March, we asked you to participate in the IRRI survey 2019, and in exchange, we promised a “Nordic Cut” to reveal both the Nordic firms and individuals who stand out and who the Nordics choose globally.

    Finally, thanks to the hard work of SRI-Connect and its mastermind, Mike Tyrell, we have received the results of the Nordic cut!

    These next few weeks, you will be able to discover a different category, and we will be celebrating a winner (look at the calendar below to find out more).
