The way we work and play has changed. Big companies who have not innovated have failed. Small companies who have innovated are thriving. Laggard companies are being crushed. Companies who can strategically innovate are being created and growing. Will your business thrive? Will it survive? Seth Godin will do a rare Q&A session, answering your burning questions about small business, marketing and doing work that matters. Carly Strife, of Barkbox (and previously with Uber) will present her real life, hands on experiences, and best practices in how small companies can profitably innovate and grow in the midst of challenging market forces and intense competition.
