Keynote Speaker – Amber Mac

Relentless Adaptation: Best Practices for Today’s Digital Economy

We obsess over innovation. But innovation is overrated. If you look at the smart companies that are prized for “innovation,” you will see that they are actually masters of “adaptation”—of knowing when to adjust, when to speed up, and when to capitalize. This big picture talk sheds light on how to adapt, and how to win, in our fast-forward economy.

The Opening Trade Show session is a time to visit vendors and scope out the latest in innovation, technology, and to see what’s trending.  Start the dialogue and set the pace for the sessions to follow while enjoying refreshments on the trade show floor.
