The Westchester Digital Summit attracted more than 300 business professionals to the day of learning and networking on May 15. The summit brought in industry leaders in the virtual marketplace to offer guidance to professionals in the Westchester business community.

Some notable speakers included Tami Cannizzaro of IBM, Brett Wein of Facebook, Linda Boff of GE, Greg Weiss of MasterCard and Gary Vaynerchuk.

Returning keynote speaker, CEO of Vayner Media and author of New York Times Bestseller Jab, Jab, Jab Right Hook, Vaynerchuk encouraged attendees to “market in the year we live in,” before warning the crowd that businesses tend to be in denial about the changes going on around them. This was followed by some beneficial, amusing and significant advice on keeping up with the changing digital age, as well as the prediction that Amazon will ultimately put Wal-Mart out of business.
