The “flash crash,” “dark pools,” and “high-frequency trading”—what do they all mean? Throughout 2018, and now into 2019, we have witnessed some extreme volatility on stock markets, sometimes with swings so huge that many […]

Wednesday at Velocity

It’s always interesting when you pull together a group of people to talk business, especially when you throw in creatives, because they’re… creative. When you get everyone together in one room, talking about industry, there are bound to be themes that just naturally come up repeatedly. The fun part is seeing what those themes turn out to be. Yesterday, Be Fearless became one of those themes, and it carried through in several sessions today. We need to be fearless as we create our designs and bui...

Sunny Skies for Velocity Conference Opening

The week before Velocity: The My Private Brand Conference, there was only one thing on everyone’s mind: Florence. And the forecast didn’t look good, especially for those who were flying into Charlotte. But this morning, the sun was shining, the birds were singing, and in the area around the Kimpton Hotel – our conference home for the next several days – you were hard pressed to tell a hurricane had come through. Networking began as soon as people hit registration, and then continued as the crowd...

Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) the 6th busiest airport in the United States and 7th in the world is open, and flights are running. The airport is 7.5 miles from the Kimpton Tryon...
