Find your DAM learning style at the Widen Summit

by Melanie Olsen, July 13, 2017

When it comes to learning styles, each of us have preferred methods of instruction. One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to how we understand things, enrich ourselves, and grow professionally. The experience you have at the Widen Summit is aimed to prepare, teach, and equip you with the latest and greatest in DAM and beyond. In addition to the experience, we have some great offerings outside of this year’s 16 breakout sessions. (Pssst. Stay tuned for more on the breakout session lineup in next month’s Summit blog!)

DAM and marketing conferences we’ll be at in 2017

by Melanie Olsen, February 1, 2017

2017 marks a year of more dedicated one-on-one support from Widen, more Workshops and Widen community events, and a couple new conferences we’ll be attending for the first time.

We know that our community of customers has great stories to tell, and they’re stories that help other DAM practitioners learn and grow. We’ve made it a point to invite our customers to the table anytime we get an opportunity to speak because their stories help others to understand just how powerful technology can lift your process, connect your teams, and save time, sanity, brain power, and money. We’re proud that our customers are joining us throughout the year!

Check out our 2017 lineup. If we’re lucky enough to cross paths in the coming months, I encourage you to join us for dinner or pop over and give us a high-five or a fist bump. We love it!

Widen Workshop LA rounds out 2016

by Melanie Olsen, January 9, 2017

In 2016, we hosted three Widen Workshops: New York City in May, Chicago in July, and we finished the lineup by heading west to Los Angeles in November. During the Workshops, Widen admins spent the day sharing ideas and learning from each other, planning for future site optimization, and taking the next steps with their Widen Collective site. While we were in LA, we of course ate some great local food (street tacos, anyone?) and made sure to hold the Workshop in a big, open, and appropriately arty workspace right off Hollywood Boulevard in the heart of “show biz” (it was in the back room of an actual art shop).
