Last week we hosted “the largest gathering of creative operations professionals in the history of mankind” - our first Creative Operations Summit in NYC.
The turnout was fantastic, with over 50 individuals representing companies ranging from Chico's to Chipotles, and Airbnb to Victoria’s Secret - next year, we hope to span the entire alphabet - A to Z.
Our speakers lead four spirited discussions:
- Getting Started with Creative Operations
- Growing Teams
- Technology Planning
- Metrics and Measurements
Special thanks to all of our panelists - the expertise from Diadeis, DirecTV, Michael Kors, Oakley, Prudential, Sam’s Club and ConceptShare - was invaluable, and the openness about both successes and challenges was educational.
The most striking observation from the summit is that there is a bottled-up need for community. There was a large outpouring of discussion - discovering peers in other companies that ‘speak the same language’ and ‘face the same challenges’. As moderators, the biggest challenge was reigning in participant's energy.
- We hope the creativeoperationshub.com will become a home for ongoing discussions. It’s free and moderated to avoid sales pitches. Jump in and share!
- There will certainly be another summit next year - we’d love your feedback about what month and city would work best.
- In the new year, we’ll launch a Creative Operations Roadshow - bringing a scaled down conversation to 6-8 cities throughout the country. Can’t travel? We’ll come to you.
