Listen into IAAPA’s top CEO’s debate innovation in our industry.

Jeff Bezos has a Day One business mind-set, his quotes include: “It is always Day One at Amazon.

“Staying in Day One requires you to experiment patiently, accept failures, plant seeds, protect saplings, and double down when you see customer delight. Day One is about being constantly curious, nimble, and experimental. It means being brave enough to fail if it means that by applying lessons learnt, we can better surprise and delight customers in the future. If you come in to work and think it’s Day two – you are already dead.”

Join this year’s CEO Talk to learn, from those at the top of their game, how they innovate, and listen to their examples of bringing the new and fresh into play; and what is most innovative in our industry.
