  • Leland Maschmeyer - Chief Creative Officer, Chobani

This talk follows a tech-driven fault line into one of the key tent poles of business growth: the concept of “brand.” It’s aim is not to necessarily say what will happen, but to project out a possibility based on current trends. The hope is that if we can visualize this possible future early enough, interrogate it, make sense of it, we may be able to turn destruction to our advantage.
