So far, most of the User Summit coverage has been about the learning sessions. A lot of great information was shared, and attendees picked up tips how to make best use of the Media Collective.
Social events serve a dual purpose. They give people an opportunity to relax and unwind and allow customers to connect with each other and Widen staff. In today’s business world, it’s possible to work closely with someone and never see them face-to-face.
The Widen Summit started the afternoon of Monday, October 13 with pure fun. Attendees could take their pick of rock climbing, pizza-making, or a tour of the capital. Highlights below.
Rock climbing was a blast. Most of climbers were newbies, and the staff at Boulders got everyone into their harnesses and up the wall.
Jake Athey, Marketing Director at Widen, brought along a GoPro camera so that you can vicariously experience the thrill of rock climbing:
Pizza-making also provided an opportunity for people to get to know each other and experience an excellent new Madison restaurant, Cento.
Steve Salt took his pizza making skills home with him:

The last option was a private tour of Madison’s gorgeous capital building. The group got a peek inside of some of the areas no longer open to the public, including the Trumpeter’s Balcony.
The night ended with a reception at Cooper’s Tavern on the square:
And Frankie Buckle went back to her hotel to enjoy the view.
