Digital PM Camp Asheville: November 14–16
Digital project management is on the front lines of every digital project. If something isn't working optimally, it impacts your entire company. Cost, schedule, quality, team dynamics, client satisfaction and profits all suffer. Gather with fellow digital project managers and solve real problems based on experience, not theory.
Creative Director Camp New Orleans: December 2–4
Creative directors wear many hats including designer, visionary, mentor, mediator and salesperson. Some of these roles might come as second nature to you. Some you may view as necessary evils, and some just drain the lifeblood out of you. Hone in on the things that are holding you and your team back, and work with your peers to figure out the best path forward.
Operations Camp New Orleans: December 5–7
Operations is the “how” that gets you from sales to profit. With so many moving pieces: pipelines, resources, ResearchOps, DesignOps, DevOps…there’s a lot to think about and work out. Rather than go it alone, why not tackle challenges with your fellow operators? We’ll open up the floor for our toughest challenges and hash out solutions together.
Owner Summit 2019: February 10–12, Austin, TX
In 2015, more than 100 digital owners came together in Austin to share insights, talk about challenges and discuss where the industry was and could be. We're headed back to Austin for 2019 to celebrate our fifth anniversary where it all began. This year's summit will hone in on the theme of being a better business. We'll focus on finance, legal, process, business development and other mission-critical aspects to gear up for 2019 and our best year yet. Join us for workshops 2/10/19 and the Summit 2/11–2/12/19.
