CREATIVE & STRATEGIC WORKSHOP
Join other marketers in small groups to review the morning sessions before each "content studio" is assigned to develop a complete A-Z story-driven concepts around select frameworks.
Each team will name their studio, decide which roles they need, and then develop real world strategic and creative ideas that can be implemented at your brand.
There are two workshop sessions in the afternoon with a break in between them. Each content studio team pitches their ideas to others, ask questions about their creative and strategy, and winning ideas are selected.
