Food for Thought from FITC


FITC2

A couple weeks ago, we had the opportunity to attend various talks at FITC 2013 in Toronto. For those who’ve never come across it before, FITC (Future. Innovation. Technology.Creativity) organizes design and technology-focused events in a number of cities across the world. Presentations at this three-day conference generally cover a variety of topics, which are creative, technical as well as strategic in nature.

Having attended a few talks as a team, we wanted to share some key learnings that really resonated with us. So here we go:
