What would you do differently in your business, if people first had to pay for admission?

In 1999, Joseph Pine and James Gilmore's book 'The Experience Economy' catapulted onto the Best Seller list. Ten years down the track, the philosophies they shared have never been more relevant.

Commodities are fungible, goods tangible, services intangible, and experiences memorable. And what are you doing to create these experiences. In this strategic session you will walk with ideas that will differentiate yourself from your competitor.
