The key note speaker was Adam Balon from Innocent drinks and I have to say he was one of the best speakers I have heard in the last couple of years. He shared the Innocent story and summarised his learns as: Have a clear mission Be transparent Start small,trial,learn,improve and repeat Open up, listen up Keep on with the new innovation If you get the chance to hear Adam speak,then grab the opportunity as he is inspiring and thought provoking.
