About Leaders:

On each episode of LEADERS, host James Fratzke, will interview a proven Leader, CEO, Entrepreneur, or Founder and unpack their story of success. There’s this quote by Sir Isaac Newton “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” And that’s what LEADERS is all about. It's an opportunity for us to stand on the shoulders of giants and learn from their journey.
