Innovation – The Key to Continuous Growth
As a SuperConference tradition, Chubby and Richard's opening session will help you discover how building a culture of innovation will be the key to long term success. We all know how hard it can be to continuously grow sales year after year while holding gross profit. As your business gets bigger with closer to perfect production percentages, growing at least 10% every year takes innovation to challenge all the possible opportunities and obstacles. In addition, absolutely everything around us is changing at a pace never seen in modern history. Being better than your competition and giving exceptional customer service TODAY may not make the grade tomorrow. Innovation must be a key business priority. We will show you how.
