Russell Wardrop compered the conference but still found time to listen and learn from the speakers he introduced. In this short video blog, Russell shares what he learned from each of the speakers, and what he plans to change in his business as a result.
Ali McGill says innovation, turnaround, focus and iconic brands were the highlights of his conference.
Ali, MD of Freelance World, says everyone is focused on technology and wants to be the next Facebook or Instagram and sell for millions, but Colin Robertson’s story really resonated with him.
“Here’s a company manufacturing buses in Scotland, they’re one of the largest companies in the world in their sector.
“That’s a perspective we need to take away,” says Ali.
Innovation shows up in many different forms, says Colin Robertson of Alexander Dennis. In his case, reducing a bus size by 6 inches meant winning a $100 million contract.
Colin, the Exchange’s Entrepreneur of the Year, was speaking at the Annual Conference. In this short video, he talks about innovation and learning.
Colin’s top quote of the day? “Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care!”
