Heard accolades from everyone afterward…all the way to the parking lot. Refueling stop for innovation highway,” according to Kevin Connor, Owner of Modern Strategic Branding & Communications. "One of the most intellectually stimulating meetings in years!” according to Jim Pennypacker, Publisher and Editor-in-chief at Maven House Press.
“This program seeks to maximize the impact on the mid-Atlantic Economy and explore the all-important topic of innovation,” said Vardy. “We will focus on building an innovation culture, and participants will learn the benefits of building an innovation culture for their business.”
