    In his session, Gary Vaynerchuk teaches entrepreneurs how to take advantage of the current business environment, while also preparing them to succeed as it changes and evolves into what he’s termed “The Thank You Economy.” With the rise of the Internet and the power of the common consumer, businesses must look backwards and scale the caring their grandparents’ businesses exhibited towards their customers, or watch the competition pass them by.
