This talk will focus on big picture thinking, outline the key characteristics of innovative companies and leaders, and drill into tactics that can be applied to anyone running a business (from a solo practice to a multi-million dollar enterprise).

Chris will include a mix of stories and research, and share the mistakes and lessons learned from running two seven-figure, creative businesses that span over two decades, working in one of the most competitive markets in the world.
