Got 15 minutes? Take a look at the collection of videos from our recent Fall Communications Network Conference in Boston that follow.
All the videos were shot by members of the Gorilla Engagement Squad, our volunteer team of videographers who were deployed for the third time in as many years to capture thoughts, impressions and other comments from attendees. If you were with us in Boston, click on any or all for a nice refresher on the big topics, challenges and resulting take-aways that hopefully equipped you with fresh ideas and new approaches to apply to the work you’re doing back home.
If you weren’t there, watch the videos to get a feel for what was discussed. Don’t be surprised if you see similarities to what you are dealing with on your job. More so, you’ll see that there are lots of folks who are just a phone call or email away who can help you.
Social Media Challenges offers thoughts on what needs to be done make the the most of this still new and evolving way of communicating and connecting with audiences.
Take-Aways is a catch-all collection of the ideas, suggestions and other take-aways conference attendees said they’ll bring back to the office to help them on their jobs.
Whether you’ve been to multiple Network conferences or only one, what’s your take about the current conversations? Let us know.
Finally, we owe a big thanks to the following for their work as Gorilla volunteers — some first-timers and others repeat volunteers from past conferences.
