When you have more stores in North America than any other, and in fact are the world’s largest restaurant chain, how do you sustain your position, much less grow it? This session will focus on applying innovation to marketing Subway restaurants in North America. We will look at applying design thinking and strategy to the marketing function in the food industry. And we will ask you to apply your innovation skills and provide specific ideas on how you would grow Subway.

Todd McCullough is the acting head of marketing for Subway North America and he is also a Disruption Lab Associate. He has advised well over 100 of the Fortune 500 companies and has advised 5 of the 6 largest management consulting firms in the world to help them with their innovation practices.

Todd consults for major companies, invests in and develops small companies through Kernel Equity, and he teaches on innovation and growth strategy at Vanderbilt University.

The healthcare system is complex, expensive and broken. With the pharmacist role centered around medication, one would think that pharmacists are at the center of solving our healthcare crisis. But that simply has not been the case…until now. With trends toward moving care out of expensive facilities to anywhere, anytime; and moving care to the appropriate level of care provider; as well as obvious trends toward consumerism and patient centered medicine; pharmacists are emerging as a key solution to our broken healthcare system. And this movement is being accelerated by regulatory and legal changes allowing pharmacists to be paid as providers.

In this session, the incoming President of the American Pharmacists Association, Dr. Brad Tice, will describe the role of pharmacists in the new models of care delivery that have the potential to disrupt and dramatically improve our health system.
