About

Enterprises of all sizes are striving to reimagine themselves by creating resilient, agile, creative cultures of innovation. Today’s leaders are searching for strategies, structures, processes, and methods to meet the challenges of our fast-paced and uncertain world. Innovation is the key to resilient, sustainable, and thriving businesses, communities, and cultures. In practice, however, innovation is difficult. While many see it as a journey from A to B and believe we can build a bridge between these points, it’s not that simple. From insight to innovation, from idea to implementation – the process is not linear. We must understand that reality is uncertain, complex, and at times chaotic.

How can business and community leaders navigate this complexity and drive innovation? How can they become more resilient and adaptive in the face of change? SDI Miami is for entrepreneurs, executives, and directors charged with managing organizations and teams that are interested in Lean, Design Thinking, Agile, Customer Experience, and Product Innovation.

SDI Miami Creative Team

Adam Haas

Adam Haas, president, began his career in the entertainment industry in 2007 as a DJ for private events. His passion for high energy events is what attracted him to the industry, but it was his customer-centric and detail-oriented approach that caused his reputation to grow. Over time, Adam continuously immersed himself in new areas of event production, allowing him to expand both his business and his expertise.

This process of personal and business growth culminated in Adam creating 3 Pillars Events, a one-stop shop for all of his clients' event needs. With each event, the productions grew and so did the 3 Pillars Team. Adam attributes much of his success to the power of his team, without whom Adam's elaborate visions would not become a reality. It is the strength of 3 Pillars as a whole that has made it stand out in the events industry.
