Here are a few of our favorite quotes from March’s panel:

“From an innovation standpoint, you don’t want to sprint for the sake of sprinting.” –  Chris Hintermeister, Senior Manager, Innovation, Gatorade

“Get things off of paper into the real world.” – Tharius Sumter, Director, Global Portfolio Insights, Pepsico 

“Within startups it is do or die. How do you create do or die within a big company, because that’s what’s needed.” – Barry Calpino, Senior Innovation Leader, experience at Conagra, Mondelez, SCJ, Newell, Wrigley, & Kellogg’s

“It’s about finding the right people, at the right time at different points in the journey. That’s what real collaboration is about.” –  Erin Overly, Head of Brand Communications, Grainger
