Poking at the ground with a stick & Ross's Timbuk2 bag — Episode 14

This week’s episode of Sam and Ross Like Things is brought to you by Floricane, a Richmond-based strategy and leadership consultancy. A floricane is the berry-producing vine of a bramble bush, and Floricane is focused on helping individuals and organizations bear new fruit. They do that by hanging out with people—a handful or a hundred at a time—and creating conversations about the future. Floricane is all about democratizing change within organizations, whether they’re a small business, a mid-sized non-profit, or a large corporation. They believe that giving people a voice in the future you are trying to create makes for a better future.
