Adapting, Growing and Succeeding in Business   

As the owner of a small business, the pandemic and political landscape over the last 2.5 years has presented many challenges.  Rachel Delgado transitioned from a career in a prestigious law firm to co-principal in LANCAS, where she provides extensive investigative and consulting services for corporate clients and individuals.  Rachel will share her experience in navigating uncharted waters in the business setting.
