This week, we kicked off our series of Unofficial Unconferences — private, peer-to-peer discussions in relaxed, 3-4 hour sessions hosted in our members’ offices.
Avnet’s Hanna Neitzke stepped up to host our very first one (along with the H&R Block and Hallmark teams in Kansas City and Cargill team in Twin Cities) — bringing together Phoenix-area social media leaders from: Apollo Education Group, ARAMARK, Arizona Public Service, Avnet, Dignity Health, Honeywell, and Synchrony.
They kicked off the meeting with breakfast discussions before moving into a fantastic Show & Tell talk on governance for global brands by Synchrony’s VP of Social Media, Nicole Johnson. They finished off the session with two rounds of unconferences — where attendees could talk about the topics that mattered most to them that day.
A huge thank you to Hanna for all the hard work she put into making this amazing meeting possible.
Everyone involved put together an incredible morning of brands-only conversations — and it was a huge success!
It’s so exciting to see members like Hanna giving back to the community like this and building strong connections with social media leaders in her own city.
