Once again, we were inspired by the smart, generous, and friendly people who made Member Meeting 40 in Los Angeles a big success.
We surrounded ourselves with 95 social media leaders from 68 big brands and zero vendors in attendance, and heard great case studies from Dole Digital Media and Communications Manager Amy Summers; Western Union Vice President of Global Social Media Karen O'Brien; Subaru Corporate Social Media Specialist Lauren Papasidero; Hewlett Packard Enterprise Digital Marketing Specialist Ted Sclavos; Intuit Worldwide Social Team Lead for Small Business Group Geoff Morgan; Cambia Health Solutions Manager of Social Media Jeremy Solly; Garmin International Global Digital Advertising and Social Media Manager Carla Meyer; and Dick's Sporting Goods Senior Manager of Digital Marketing Mary Holahan.
We had a private, members-only discussion with Alex Winter, President of Trouper Productions, and of course held the confidential, nowhere else conversations you get at our private Member Meetings.
