Stuff We Get Asked A Bunch

Where can I get a copy of The Bureau Standard Agreement for Digital Services?

The Bureau Standard Agreement is an wonderful contribution to our community created by Gabe Levine of Groundwork Legal and Josh Barrett of Create Legal in an effort to create the industry standard for digital services contracts. Grab your copy here.

 

What's the difference between a summit and a camp?

A Bureau Summit is one part traditional conference, one part facilitated conversations and 100% community building. We start the day with speakers and subject matter experts sharing great insights on stage to hundreds of attendees, and then break into smaller groups where you can connect based on criteria that matter to you.

Bureau Camps are smaller, 25-30 person gatherings where you have a voice in the agenda and the content. They take place in creative settings where you can forget the day-to-day and dive into the bigger issues that keep you from realizing your goals.

These videos do a good job of showing the difference.

What's the deal with Interest Lists?

A majority of Bureau Camps sell out more than a full month prior to the event, so this year we'll be using interest lists to help us make sure we’re being fair in allocating tickets and creating a more diverse experience. There is no obligation on your part to purchase when you sign up. But if you have your heart set on attending, you know what to do. 

Why do camps cost more than summits?

The registration fee for a Bureau Camp includes your hotel accommodations which accounts for much of the difference. It's also a much smaller event, so every registration carries a higher percentage of the event cost.

Business Development with Joe Rinaldi
In the early days of web design, there was more work than any one shop could handle. Everyone was super selective on the clients they took, and project focused. 

Soft Skills with Peta Kennett-Wilson
Soft skills are rarely discussed in the process focused world of digital project management. But when you spend time understanding the team and the client as humans, an amazing thing can happen.

Back to the Basics with Sam Barnes
They call them "the basics". Little, innocuous things that don't seem to really matter. But they do. In fact, something as simple as sending an acknowledgment email to an important message can make all the difference
