– Key Three Success Factors…
– Success Metrics…
– Biggest A-Has/Insights…
– The Role Between Culture, Brand, Product, Experience, Strategy, Tools and Technology…
– Things They’re Still Learning…
– Soundbyte/Quotable quote – No. #1 Piece of Advice to Digital Engagement Others…
– What They are Looking Forward to in The Future…
Hopefully we’ll post as many as we can over the next little while here and a few other places.
