#cbsiTalkingBusiness: 4Q 2019 Conference Highlights and Talks
Being "Purpose Driven" both as an organization or brand and individually was a theme we heard multiple times at conferences we were privileged to attend in 4th quarter this year.
Maintaining customer trust, synchronizing the disciplines of on-line marketing, being time effective in generating social media presence, building a supportive culture, delegation as a means to growth, were key points we heard. Perhaps the most pragmatic question was Tammy Berentson of on-line grocer was

It was inspiring to hear the commitment to serving needs of veterans and military families from USAA and Google while covering the Army-Navy Game.
