    Great event. It was interesting to hear how these companies think about and execute on growth strategies. One common theme that came about was that you need to have an operating plan/model and then execute it. As time passes, this plan/model might evolve but at least you would have some guiding principles to follow. Another theme that was observed is that customer is key and more you can put yourself in their shoes, the better products and services you can provide.
