Lifelong learning and diversity are indispensable. Fully using the potential of your people is the main differentiator.

“I can say with confidence that traditional players in the US and abroad are not innovating the right way. Processes are broken, execution is too slow, politics stalls decision-making and resources are too scarce.”

“And an energized team of outside experts is what the industry really needs — an agile workforce that can act as an extension of internal teams.” ~ Scott Emmons, Neiman Marcus
