As the world is catapulted into new norms and expectations, we are seeing the baseline of ease and convenience being reset and converging with a heightened expectation of meaningful experiences.

In this episode, join a dynamic conversation with Joe Jackman and Melissa Gonzalez addressing how today’s “workarounds” are driving organic innovation, what we can learn from it and how to create a muscle around listening, learning and adaption in a timely manner.
