The team here at VM kicked off the week with our annual Vision Monday Global Leadership Summit which took place at the Times Center this past Wednesday. This year’s program, titled "Decoding the Consumer: The New Science of Customer Behavior," focused on consumer trends and behavior. Those in attendance were presented with trends and tactics that are shaping business decision-making from top retail analysts, health care experts, data scientists and marketing innovators.

VM encouraged attendees to use the hashtag #VMSummit to share thoughts and opinions as well as continue the conversation on social media. Attendees and speakers alike took to Twitter and Instagram and shared their experiences. Some ran into old friends, others made new acquaintances while most shared quotes that they found striking.

As we are now in full swing of Vision Expo East, VMail Weekend has compiled a list of some quotes heard at the #VMSummit that you can quickly read as you go from one end of the Javits to the other.
