Tweetable Quotes:

"With any client that we engage with, we always start with "WHY?". It's just important from a consultative standpoint to really understand what the motivations are behind them." – Matt Morasky



"You have to just be confident enough in your own self to say, yeah, I contributed to that. I took this nascent idea, got it off the ground, brought people on board, and then let the bird fly. And I think that's a really important lesson for a lot of us in terms of how we consider our role in innovation." – Matt Morasky
