Elevate or Die: Robin Crow

As the founder and CEO of three companies, Robin Crow has experienced first-hand what it takes to adapt and reinvent in order to stay relevant. When the music industry was going through a period of massive disruption due to the digital download revolution and evolving computer technology, almost every major recording complex was forced into bankruptcy. So, he began concentrating on service over technology, on creating amazing experiences for each client who recorded at Dark Horse. That journey of evolution begins over twenty years ago and today, Dark Horse Recording is one of the most successful studio complexes in the world.

You can be disrupted or the disruptor. In his Clear keynote, Robin Crow will demonstrate how you can become constant innovators able to adapt and embrace change. This interactive presentation is titled after Robin’s USA Today best-selling book, Evolve or Die. Robin will show us all how to turn disruption into advantage by anticipating the changes facing your industry.
