Our team attended the Orange Tour last Friday, as we do every year. I was able to be part of the Lead Small event the night before, which also was a lot of fun. The Orange Tour is a taste of what you can experience at the Orange Conference, and registration for the 2016 Orange Conference opened today. Here are 10 learnings from this year’s Orange Tour.
