Bloomberg TV Anchor Adam Johnson will host a special session on “Innovation” at the upcoming IBFS 2014 with a focus on how the world’s smartest CEOs are revolutionizing business.
IBFS, the premier event in BFSB’s calendar of events each year, is scheduled for January 23-26 at Sandals Emerald Bay, Georgetown, Exuma. Mr. Johnson will speak to the power of innovative and creative thinking in growing and sustaining business – and how strategic management of innovation has to be a part of corporate strategy. He will showcase examples of diverse types of business operations where this has proven to be the case, time and time again.
