ACCELERATE LOGOI once again attended the one-day #ACCELERATE conference. This time it was held in Chicago and I had the privilege of being asked to give one of the 5-minute “Super Accelerator” presentations. The format remained the same as last time – the majority of the day was taken up by the main speakers, each doing “Ten Tips in 20 Minutes” on their respective topics. The day then ended with the Super Accelerators, who each had 5 minutes to speak on “One Big Idea.”

Here is my summary of the day – as you can tell, what a virtual “Firehose of Data” we were doused with.
