Competition can be beneficial, but it can also hinder growth, notes +Tetra Pak USA & Canada's CEO Brian Kennell in latest column. In today’s complex business environment, companies can’t go it alone—the case for collaborative innovation.
Fail, fail and fail again. No executive wants to hear these words, let alone report them to his or her boards, or worse, shareholders. But when you look at the new product failure rate--a stunning 8

I'm pleased as punch, overjoyed and tickled (all of those things at once) to announce +LoganSquarist v. 2.0! After many long hours of obsessing, tweaking and playing with code I shouldn't be touching, the site has upgraded to a sleeker, cleaner and meaner (in a good way) design! Upgraded directory, refined information AND a brand new LoganSquarist Store (that's right, get your Logan Square merch right here!) Learn more about the updates and check it out! http://bit.ly/10uDDrv

Focusing on making food healthier can win companies big points among consumers. +Tetra Pak USA & Canada's Brian Kennell discusses steps companies can take to capture this segment.
Products with fewer ingredients appeal to the broader market, and the food and beverage industry is taking notice: The second annual Clean Label Conference took place earlier this year, drawing more than 200 industry attendees.

A recent question got me thinking about how content creators can set themselves apart in today's overly crowded content landscape. I detail five things I think content creators should consider when creating content that will help them have an edge.
Content creators need to blend marketing know-how, research and analysis, and intuition to tell stories effectively.

Introduction
I am the director of digital strategy and social media at IntraLink Global—a Chicago-based precision content marketing agency and PR firm.

I also founded LoganSquarist: an online Logan Square local news outlet dedicated to promoting news, events and happenings in Chicago’s Logan Square. The brand grew from the Twitter handle @LoganSquarist.

I have blogged on KatemHamilton.com, for more than 10 years. In 2011, I embarked on a yearlong project called 30 at 30—a celebration of life at 30. Check out what I'm doing this year!

I also trained for the 2012 Chicago Marathon and fund raised on behalf of TEAM TO END AIDS, and partnered with Gateway for Cancer Research for the 2012 Chicago Half Marathon.
