June’s live Cloud Wars Expo event featured dozens of industry leaders allowing the Acceleration Economy team access to the inner workings of the greatest growth market the world has ever known.
If you missed the Expo or just want to catch up on sessions you were not able to attend, then you’re in luck. We recorded more than 40 hours of education sessions from the event, which are available for free to Acceleration Economy subscribers. We’re also previewing the content in this series of Moments, which feature highlights from each session.
In this Cloud Wars Expo Moment, taken from the CXO2 Growth Acceleration conversations, Acceleration Economy’s Bob Evans, Scott Vaughan, and Tony Uphoff along with Mike Dudgeon (Senior Director, Global Strategic Accounts, LinkedIn) explore the concept of growth, defining it based on their understandings of the term.
00:19 — Bob says he thinks growth has become a mindset. A culture that is set by company leadership around the idea of growth is going to either attract people or lead them to say “no, it’s not for me.”
01:23 — As it relates to the term growth, Tony says it is a word that is “thrown around very casually today.” The remarkable, large-scale growth happening across various companies today is enabled by amazing technology. Personally, Tony thinks of growth pertaining to more than just revenue. Growth is a holistic concept that includes growth in opportunity, development, processes, and becoming a better corporate citizen.
03:09 — Dudgeon explains how the team at LinkedIn views growth. He highlights the importance of creativity in growing a business, which is required in order to fulfill a brand’s promise. He suggests successful growth requires proper communication because it impacts an organization’s ability to recruit, retain, and gain new clients.
04:26 — Tony adds that strong communication and growth are the driving factors of growth, which he deems to be a fascinating dynamic. Growth and technology are inexplicably intertwined.
04:57 — Scott says creativity and greater communication are needed to create growth and a data-driven culture.
