Design an Exceptional Digital Experience

With more ways to communicate with people than ever before, how do you know if you’re making the right impact? How do you get real engagement? 

We’re in an interesting time where marketing is changing from the hands of companies to the hands of the people, and not enough organizations are using it strategically yet. The companies that have built themselves around innovating how they connect with people and a deep appreciation of human-centred design have gone on to create lasting relationships.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to assess your organization’s brand and digital footprint, look at case studies of leading digital experience organizations, and learn how to help your organization stand out, connect with people, and stay ahead of the curve.
