About the Session: Did you know the #1 cause of business failure is planning – either no planning at all, or just plain bad planning? And 9 of the top 10 causes of business failure are related to lack of experience – not in your chosen field, but in business operations. What is the right balance to strike between getting your message out there and execution? How do you best protect your reputation in the marketplace? What does business planning have to do with agility? How does careful planning unleash innovation and enable you and your colleagues to win in the marketplace? What is the risk of bad operations, and how do you mitigate it? Ethan will share best practices learned from working with numerous startups at various points during their life cycle. He’s on a mission to turn business planning from a check-the-box activity to one that generates value and cultivates success. Ethan is a former television producer turned entrepreneur, and the insights he’s gleaned are sure to help you and your organization.
