If you can believe it, Day 2 topped Day 1, with a morning keynote from Bryan Kramer and Jeremiah Owyang that left many minds blown. Bryan Kramer spoke about remembering that what can set you apart is staying #H2H, “human-to-human,” something many businesses overlook in an age of automation. Jeremiah Owyang followed that up by showing us everything that was to come in the area of collaborative economy (perhaps the most “human-to-human” we can get).
The panel sessions that day covered topics from crisis communications, featuring a speaker from the CDC; storytelling over time according to Coca-Cola; and cities as innovation hubs, according to Atlanta councilman Kwanza Hall. Lunch featured a visit from some lovely flight attendants from London via Virgin Atlantic, and the afternoon keynote had us rolling in the aisles with laughter, thanks to funny man and digital whiz Baratunde Thurston.
We might be biased, it’s true — but we’re counting this #SocialShakeUp as a wild success.
