However, it will be the insight gleaned from each of Martin’s panelists: Corky Coker, Melanie ‘Lilly’ Pray, John Merritt and Jim Grundy, where the real learnings will be provided – as the commonality for each – beyond their own acknowledged industry stature – was gained through each of their own entrepreneurial roles within the industry and the key learnings they have fostered to find success through the past decades.
