Trends Breakfast: Cultural Resurgence

Posted By Sara Hope, Monday, November 7, 2016

We are still reveling from Trends Breakfast: Cultural Resurgence, special thanks to all those who atended and a VERY BIG thank you to our inspiring speakers: All Def Digital's Russell Simmons and Josh Mandel, Reddit's Alexis Ohanian, & OZY's Carlos Watson, and to our sponsors OZY Media and Viant Technology.


We have heard lots of positive feedback from attendees and our takeaways about creating authentic content, the role that both the minority-majority millennial generation has to play in the future of content, and the short mediation session led by Russell will certainly stay with us!

The Future of Leadership

Posted By Sara Hope, Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Leadership in the future requires much more than operating skills, technical understanding or financial expertise. While functional skills make you a more efficient manager, they don't necessarily make you a better leader.

Thank you to Nina Amjadi, Director of Tailored Learning, at Hyper Island Interactive for helping attendees to gain insights about future trends, events, and factors that shape the expectations of a leader including defining our personal leadership purpose and style.

 

We mastered the following:

• Conflict resolution
• Active listening
• How to lead diverse personalities, cultures, generations, and work styles
• Building trust and influence with others

Thanks to all of you who attended, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Check out the Future of Leadership Powerpoint to learn more.

Motor City West 2016

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Motor City West 2016 was sold out, and it's easy to understand why. The best-of-the-best were on stage to discuss auto marketing and how the industry has had to progress to stay ahead of the curve. We learned that the traditional ways of selling have been flipped, going from an average of four dealer visits per sale to just over one. Auto companies are morphing into selling experiences, and mobile use for research is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. Social media, from shares to sales, is a key focus now and going into 2017. The way TV is consumed has also changed how we target our customers, and understanding the connection between offline to online will become more powerful. AI and data are now center stage, and the ability to harness and utilize that information to help sales will be the illuminating ingredient for 2017.

 

Big thanks to our speakers who shared their insights and expertise this year at Motor City West:

Legal Issues in Advertising

Posted By Sara Hope, Friday, September 30, 2016

On Sept. 27th, we discussed social media advertising, clearance issues, UGC challenges, and copyrights and music law in advertising. We learned when launching a social campaign to anticipate a range of consumer reactions. 

A few key takeaways:

  • Be sensitive to social and political issues
  • Determine all the ways your company plans to use your content
  • Have appropriate protections and response mechanisms in place before you begin
  • Take advantage of the federal laws that were enacted to protect you
  • Monitor content and refuse to post content that violates your terms and conditions
  • Copyright protects expression, not ideas

A Brief Look Info Mindfulness with ThinkLA

Posted By Sara Hope, Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Research shows us that there are mental and physiological perks to mindfulness and meditation. People who practice mindfulness might actually sport a little more grey matter (which is a good thing) than their peers who shy away from trying. Mindfulness can improve our creativity, build skills needed for peak performance and dynamic leadership, and even help us sleep better. Who couldn't use that?

On Sept 7, ThinkLA hosted their third Mindfulness workshop at Team One with InsightLA instructor, Allen Weiss. Watch our video recap to learn more about the benefits of everyday mindful practice.
