"Brian Solis took Idaho by storm with a message of ‘disrupt or be disrupted'. There are new rules to getting your message out—rules that engage young and older (connected) people differently. Brian lent his vast expertise to Idaho’s key creatives and helped them understand how to use the power of social media more effectively to mobilize grassroots efforts.”

“According to Brian Solis, Customer Experience is the next battlefield for brands. Those that get it right will not only create long-lasting customer relationships, but will also earn a significant competitive advantage over those that solely compete on product, price or promotion. On the other hand, companies that do not master the art of customer experience, will lose relevance and market share over time.”
