Author of Insanely Simple, Segall is an advertising executive who worked closely with Steve Jobs for over 12 years. He started the i-frenzy by naming iMac and helped develop Apple’s famous Think different campaign. To Steve Jobs, “simplicity” was a religion. He built a company based on its principles, in which the complexities of traditional business were simply not tolerated. Insanely Simple explains the ten elements of simplicity that drive Apple’s success. The Apple story is fascinating to people across all industries. Congress & Expo attendees will be enlightened and entertained by insights provided by Ken Segall.
Chris Fisher, Managing Principal, Ducker Worldwide, will be the featured speaker during Thursday morning’s general session. The economy is recovering, population is shifting, financial regulations are changing and the housing industry has permanently shifted.
