Millennial vs. Brand Meet Up

Is your “always on” made by those who are actually always online? Or is it made by the same folks who tried to newsjack the Harlem Shake two weeks after digital natives moved on to something more interesting? Perhaps it’s time to bring in the experts. That’s what we did. We got digital natives from Austin Community College and Hackney Community College. They met with three CMOs and agreed to solve the CMO's critical business problem their way - tech first, millennial first, culture first. Lessons learned: it's about authenticity and brutal honesty. It’s about speed to market and ripping up agency processes and starting again. Don’t pretend to “get” Millennials. Just get them in and get on with it. At this meet-up you will meet the CMOs to hear about their experiences first hand. You will get to experience the Millennials solutions and find out how breaking all the rules leads to rule defining answers. It's networking, the Millennial way.
