Adrian has 4 takeaways:
- Have a clear vision, get your organisation behind it, and visit it regularly.
- Hire great people who are preapred to adapt and deal with ambiguity. Therefore, don’t hire cheap, make sure you hire right.
- Don’t be married to your existing business model. Technology is advancing faster than you can imagine and it will present both opportunities and new competition.
