Within the first year of applying Blue Ocean Strategy, we zipped past office equipment giants like Best-Buy, Office Depot and Staples in nationwide sales of videoconferencing equipment, electronic whiteboards and shredders.
Your talk on Blue Ocean Strategy is a source of inspiration as we clarify our thinking about where we want to be and how we plan to get there. I have referred back to the materials on a number of occasions and found them to be of great help in formalizing our thoughts.
The presentation on Blue Ocean Strategy was not only well received but extremely timely as we are reevaluating our future course of action for growth. Our group enjoyed your presentation, not only for the very valuable content but also for your preparation, materials and delivery. The discussion on Blue Ocean Strategy was well communicated with examples which clarified concepts and helped internalize them. Your demeanor was friendly and approachable that encouraged the audience to actively participate and ask questions.
Your presentation was outstanding and gave the students an excellent overview of how to use Blue Ocean Strategies to seek growth opportunities in uncontested marketspaces. I greatly appreciate your willingness to share your experience and insights with our MBA students.
My sincerest thanks for the exciting and energizing Blue Ocean Strategy session at the DataPath Summit 2009. The feedback concerning your presentation that I have received from the attendees is completely positive. In particular, our clients, who are business entrepreneurs, stated they received from you a business ideology and model that is especially pertinent to their needs as they face a healthcare market that is rapidly changing. Your presentation was everything I had hoped for and more.
You inspired and encouraged entrepreneurs to initiate deep analysis within their companies and industries when they had minimal prior knowledge of strategic management.
You captured the imagination of our energetic management team and widened their perspective on forming strategy. Blue Ocean Strategy, I feel, presents a broader perspective in which we can see our business situation. Thus, we can evolve ways of expansion and business growth at a relatively low cost as well as lower business risks.
Thank you very much for your insightful presentation on Blue Ocean; the group was very excited about the topic and really carried the main points with them through the rest of the conference. Thanks so much for making our conference a success
I want to thank you again for your great session. I have already received many positive e-mails and messages regarding the content of your talk. I thought your examples were great and I know many people are now thinking about how the Blue Ocean Strategy can be applied to their industry. I already have people in my company thinking of ways to think outside the box to create blue oceans
