Build Your Personal Brand: Leadership Tools For Women - Recap

Posted By Sara H. Smith, Friday, February 26, 2016
Our first class geared specifically to women was a sellout. Women from a diverse group of companies and at different stages in their careers dove into the five aspects of their personal brand: appearance, associations, reputation, talent and skills, and voice. Chelsea, our instructor, challenged women to think more specifically about these aspects - how to build them, own them and love them.

Takeaways from Programmatic Summit 2015

Posted By Erika Maya, Thursday, November 12, 2015

Programmatic Takeaways from Programmatic Summit 2015 has transformed the digital media landscape, creating efficiencies on both the buy and sell side, as well as providing greater scale and allowing data to be utilized in new ways. From employing true programmatic creative methodologies to rethinking internal organizational structures and ensuring that the entire digital ecosystem has the training necessary for proper execution, the key to making programmatic most effective—and maximizing ROI—lies in implementation.

 

On Wednesday, November 11th, over 600 people were in attendance at our second annual Programmatic Summit, and we heard from over 30 experts in the programmatic space. We learned about fraud, attribution, programmatic native to monetization approaches, programmatic TV and training the workforce. Check out the photos and highlights below (video coming soon!).

Thought-Provoking Takeaways from Trends Breakfast 2015

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, November 4, 2015
On Tuesday, November 3rd,Troy Carter, CEO of Atom Factory, Aaron Luber, Head of Partnerships for Google Cardboard, and moderator Carlos Watson, Founder of Ozy, wowed attendees at ThinkLA's Trends Breakfast with insights and thought-provoking discussion around the future of marketing, entertainment and technology. Attendees went home with a Google VR headset. 

   

Jason Yoong, event co-chair and Associate Media Director at UM Worldwide, provides his top-line takeaways from the breakfast: 

  1. Kids 7-12 will be early adopters of Virtual Reality, thanks to products like the Mattel VR ViewMaster and Google Cardboard. 10 years from now those kids will be your core customers. Take note marketers!
  2. Virtual Reality will revolutionize many industries including education. Teachers will be able to take their students on fieldtrips to the Taj Mahal, Eiffel Tower, the Great Wall of China, anywhere. Think about how brands can add value to that moment or help bring this to all classrooms.  
  3. Design is no longer a nice to have, it is a need to have.  
  4. The companies that will change the world (and the ones prime for investment) don't shift consumer behavior…they create new consumer behaviors.
  5. What are the keys to success? HUSTLE and CURIOSITY.
  6. Virtual Reality is on Day 1. This is the time to experiment.
  7. Daily executive summaries of the latest news is not a "Millennial thing," informative + convenient content has no generational boundaries.
