360i President Bryan Wiener kicked off the day with an overview of the agenda (a packed one at that – we even have RBC Capital Markets’ Jordan Rohan speaking during lunch) and then set
the tone by giving his take on innovation. He mentioned that there are
innovators, fast followers, and those trailing behind, and the sweet spot is
with the fast followers. That doesn’t mean hanging on competitors’ coat tails;
rather, it’s taking in everything that’s working for pioneers in every
industry, not just your own, and adapting it to make it work for you.
