The day’s program, “Insight, Unseen: How Leaders Uncover, Design and Scale Innovations,” brought together senior industry executives, optical retailers, leading eyecare professionals, suppliers and key opinion leaders from the worldwide optical industry. They listened as diverse voices from outside and within the business offered fresh perspectives on major business and health care trends. The Summit program got underway when Marc Ferrara, executive consultant, Jobson Optical Group, welcomed attendees and commented on the Summit’s purpose: “to bring industry leaders together and present them with new ideas and tools to help them manage constant change.” Then Marge Axelrad, SVP, editorial director, Vision Monday, asked attendees “to think about what they, as leaders, need to know to make good business decisions.” As the day unfolded, Summit attendees learned about non-obvious thinking, cultivating trust, the role of human capital, improving eyecare access and doing good in the vision care space.
