Smart Business 2012 Innovation in Business Conference


On Thursday, September 20, I had the privilege to gather with other Cleveland area professionals at the beautiful Westlake, Ohio LaCentre Conference & Banquet Facility.

Smart Business  put on a great evening in hosting the 14th annual Business Innovation Conference.  The evening commenced with some great opportunities to meet new people (which I love to do) and network, yet also see friends and business acquaintances.   The goal for the night was recognizing a variety of innovators who set themselves apart from their competition in a big way.   One key portion of the evening that resonated with me was the panel discussion led by Smart Business’s Dustin Klein.   A special thanks to Dan T. Moore III, President, Dan T. Moore Cos., Todd Goldstein, CEO/Partner,  LaunchHouse and Steve Potash, President/CEO, Overdrive, Inc. for such a vibrant, lively discussion.

The groups honored were Rising Stars, Visionaries and Master Innovators representing manufacturing, software, technology, retailing and two business incubators.  Their approaches to business are unique and have delivered huge results.  It was an enjoyable evening overall and Linkmedia 360 would like to congratulate all honorees mentioned below.  These individuals and businesses set a fine example in having a goal and sticking with it, having passion, staying focused and sometimes thinking outside the box.  Congratulations!
