The third annual GROW Conference takes place August 22-24th, 2012 in Vancouver, BC. There were 800 plus attendees last year at this event, so don’t miss out on this great opportunity. Our CEO, Jeff Keen, along with Venture Accelerate Program client, ..duo courtesy of BCIC, are attending.
The Theme of Grow 2012: Re-Thinking Business: Staying relevant in a new era
Engage or die. The social web has changed consumer expectations and empowered them with real-time information and a digital soapbox. They are your customers and your employees. In today’s noisy marketplace with low switching costs, they can leave you at any time. To stay competitive, companies must create a culture of respect and openness, build a strong brand, and emotionally engage their community. In the land of ‘me too’ companies what you stand for and how you interact is your differentiator.
