Thanks to the Growthinkers who traveled far to Los Angeles today - Alicia, Bridget, Dave, and Stacey - for a great day of strategy sessions, brainstorms, and re-connecting. And also a thanks and kudos to everyone who filled the day with such positive energy and "optimism bias"! Onward and upward for 2015 and beyond!
The recent International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas featured more than 3600 exhibitors and was attended by over 170,000 people, both show records. It’s a trade-only event for the consumer technology industry and not open to the general public. Exhibitors include many startups up to Fortune 500 companies like Ford, pictured below.
Among the hottest products
on display were drones. Over 80 exhibitors featured drones, a 500% increase
Growthink's Market Research Team is thrilled to welcome Alicia LaDuke! With 10 years of research and business analyst experience, most recently at Kelly Services, a $5 billion firm, and a Masters in Library & Information Science from Wayne State University. Alicia is a great addition to the team and a valuable asset for our clients and expanding market research practice.
Alicia will be in Los Angeles on January 22nd to meet the team, but until then, please join me in giving her a warm Growthink welcome!
Great to visit with the NY gang - old faces and new! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Nice kudos to Jonathan Gomez for suggesting this great Monday morning meeting question - "What Makes a Great Growthinker?" Here were some of the answers the LA Team shared:
"Be Quick but Don't Hurry"
"Patience and Persistence"
"Attention to Detail"
Many of these are included and expressed in our values, our client promises, and our company culture as expressed on our website, but is a great reminder as we start our week to share them in our own words.
Best shoeshine in New York City from Growthink client A Shine & Co. at the Chelsea Market last Friday. Thank you, Kevin!!
