Music and politics, the disruptive power of social media and the healing power of human relationships were among topics Wednesday at the THINK 13 conference in Chicago.
Running through Thursday, this year’s conference from CO-OP Financial Services is focusing on how to "Disrupt Business as Usual" – how to creatively disrupt an organization from within, before it gets disrupted from without.
