Social Media Network – Flexing positively while the world is in flux

30 September 2020

Our world has been in flux since the pandemic began, and social media teams have been flexing all the while with it. But it’s not all doom and gloom as social media teams have found positive new ways of flexing their work. In this session, we’ll hear how teams are now planning for the short-term, long term (what does long-term even mean now?) and making space for things that pop up out of nowhere. We’ll also hear how social media teams are keeping the creative brainstorming process going while working remotely, and we’ll do a bit of brainstorming together.
