If you are getting the notion that Blue Ocean Strategy is turning up everywhere, you are right. A recent high-profile event in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, is another piece of evidence to support your claim.
On August 18th, almost 400 attendees gathered in this bustling Caribbean capital city for a half-day Blue Ocean Strategy conference, flanked by TV, radio and press coverage. The event was organized by SMILE, a local special events company that promotes inspirational and progressive business issues, and a blue ocean practitioner in its own right.
Gabor George Burt, as the invited featured guest, delivered a key note address and then lead a 90-minute interactive exercise that allowed participants to experience first hand the application of Blue Ocean Strategy. Smiles of inspiration were had by all.
