The web democratised, everyone had an opinion, a trail of digital content, a selfie. 10 years after Facebook took the social web mainstream, digital has turned customers into advocates, critics and thought leaders. Old industries and strategies were blown apart, bricks and mortar crumbled to cables and wifi. And your business evolved with social policies, mobile commerce, reporting dashboards, content strategies and the boss Tweeting. Right?</p> <p>You&rsquo;re still the one. The one with the market insights, the response plan, the data, the content pipeline and acres of experience with campaigns, crises and customers.&nbsp;But as a leader in this wild new space you feel like a lone ranger, and sense that your company is sliding back into old habits &ndash; social channels are required but barely serviced, digital investment sits in the too hard basket, there&rsquo;s little executive support and zero reporting. So where to from here?</p> <p><em>What is this all about?</em></p> <p>This workshop will help you define and tackle the challenges of digitising and socialising your business. It will be a group collaboration using a design thinking process to explore the very real business challenges of operating in the social, digital, mobile world today. You&rsquo;ll:</p> <ol><li>Tell stories, empathise, identify, clarify and share respective challenges</li> <li>Aggregate, explore, support, vote up and choose problems to address</li> <li>Develop, test, revisit, decrypt and prototype solutions</li> <li>Present, apply feedback, iterate and refine to create our own take outs.</li> </ol> <p><em>What will you get out of it?</em></p> <ul><li><strong>Leadership</strong>. Ratify your role as a digital leader - widen your skillset, revisit your convictions and evolve from operator to change agent.</li> <li><strong>Strategy</strong>. Learn how to develop a plan to apply your experience and knowledge, and activate the tools you know so well organisation wide.</li> <li><strong>Inspiration</strong>. Find inspiration and confidence from others to continue innovating.</li> <li>Insight. Live your customer&rsquo;s journeys, align with their expectations and habits to better serve their situation. Oh, and increase business through co-creation.</li> <li><strong>Connection</strong>. Form new collaborations, networks and teams. You&rsquo;re not alone.</li> <li><strong>Tools</strong>. Rediscover the thought leaders, success stories and methods to facilitate organisational change.</li> </ul> <p><em>Is it relevant to you?</em></p> <p>If you feel it&rsquo;s like the last 10 years of digital change hasn&rsquo;t impacted your workplace, team or role quite as much as it should, then it&rsquo;s time to step up. You&rsquo;re experienced &ndash; you know the channels, policies, best practices and latest digital and social trends well &ndash; we don&rsquo;t need to go there again. Rather, you&rsquo;re a marketer, communicator, advertiser, advisor, community manager, digital or social specialist looking for the tools and tactics to get your workplace up to speed.</p> <p><em>Who&rsquo;s facilitating the show?</em></p> <p>You are not alone! Nick Leigh (Head of Digital, 303Lowe) and Andrew Mathwin (Head of Strategy and Digital Communications, Clarity Communications) will nurture, challenge and support you through a discovery, definition, ideation and creation journey to empower you to make the changes that you know are bursting to get out.
