Ashley then talks more about the innovation side of the business and what they have done differently in order to give the customers a better feeling and involve them more in the process. Ashley and Ian then talk about the option of sharing ideas between the industries and how that has helped both of them advance their businesses and go further. In the guest outro, Ashley talks more about ways to find her and the company and also shares her final notes and thoughts with the audience.
