When was the last time you considered trying “the impossible” at your business?
Get inspired during the webinar "What to Expect at the UnleashWD 2013 Innovation Summit" at noon CT on Thursday, August 8.
This webinar will show that after attending last year’s UnleashWD, attendees were motivated to experiment with new business models, drive innovation and look to the best ideas from other industries to move their businesses from industry best practices to next practices.
“I founded UnleashWD after talking to industry CEOS who continually told me of their challenges to remain relevant in what they call this age of disruption,” Dirk Beveridge, UnleashWD Founder says. “A number of distribution owners confided in me their struggle in creating a clear vision for their future. UnleashWD provides that vision. If you want to know how to embrace change instead of fearing it then join us at the UnleashWD 2013 innovation summit.”
Founded in 2012, UnleashWD is the first and only innovation summit created for wholesale distributors and their channel partners. UnleashWD features 18 innovative storytellers from outside of wholesale distribution. During 18-minute sessions, the storytellers will provide examples of adding value to a business from the areas of: Innovation, Leadership, Distribution Business Model Design and Company Culture.
“If you ever thought that you could not re-invent your business find out why UnleashWD will allow you to see new possibilities,” Beveridge said. “This webinar will provide case studies from last year’s attendees as to the change they are driving as a result of the inspiration and ‘can’t get anywhere else’ expertise that UnleashWD provides.”
Highlights of the webinar include:
Case studies of change and innovation from UnleashWD 2012 Attendees.
