Find your DAM learning style at the Widen Summit

by ,

Widen Summit 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!)

Register your team to attend the Summit

Deeper dive training

You continue to ask for opportunities to dive deeply into your DAM practice and process, so we’re thrilled to host Assets Essentials training on October 14 & 15, the weekend before the Summit. Training is two days and addresses some really important concepts in the Widen Collective — everything from the basics to the well-played. You’ll learn exactly what to do to successfully admin your site. The course is limited to 14 participants, and early bird pricing ends soon! Register to save your place.

Team collaboration workshop

Ever wonder if your team is working to its full capacity? What would it look like to optimize your team’s process and talent? Sometimes we do the same things over and over because we’ve done them forever that way, and it’s maddening, isn’t it? To help you with all those questions, we’re excited to host a Creative Workflow workshop on Monday morning, October 16. Plan to leave this session with a reflective process map, a reframed understanding of the challenges inherent in collaborative creative work, and ideas on how you can improve and streamline your processes. Space is limited to 25 participants, so register early to save your spot!

Best DAM contest

Widen customers from Zeiss, Institute for Functional Medicine, Progressive Insurance, and Spectrum Brands will compete for “Best DAM,” highlighting their system, users, processes, and structure during a round of lightning talks and individual questions. They’ll cover product utilization, system successes, user engagement, and how the Collective is part of their business strategy. Contestants will be evaluated by a panel of Widen staff and the audience, and the winner will be announced during Tuesday night’s dinner.

Find your DAM buddy

In addition to all the learning opportunities at the Summit, it’s the relationships you make year after year that often have the greatest impact. Each of you attends for many reasons, and building close DAM relationships within the Widen customer community is one that can feel richly satisfying. If you haven’t found your DAM buddy, this is the year to join us at the Summit to find someone you can contact when you need a confidant or trusted DAMster to run things by.

Last year to attend the Widen Summit for free

Consider sending more team members this year since this will be the last year we’ll be covering the costs for registration, food, drinks, and entertainment. The Summit is growing each year, and with that growth comes the need for us to change our approach next year. So if you’re on the fence about attending or bringing extra team members, this year is a great opportunity to bring them along.

Need to convince yourself or your boss? We’ve got you covered with this flyer and letter!

We offer many types of learning experiences at the Summit, from the experiential to the theoretical, and look forward to learning with you in October!
