Leadership skills are not just traits you are born with, but competencies you learn and refine throughout your life. Today, with office structures flattening and transparency at a premium, authentic leadership is critical for success in the digital age. Whether it is crowdsourced decision-making, the arrival of the Millennial Generation as customers and colleagues, or the wider reach of personal narrative in the age of new media, the challenges and opportunities that leaders face are evolving as quickly as the technology itself.
LAW ON THE DIGITAL FRONTIER Kraig Baker
Legal issues are pervasive in the use and implementation of all types of digital media and they're changing by the day. Copyright owners consistently struggle with how to monetize content without alienating end users, bloggers confront the parameters and limits of free expression, and consumers are more and more sensitized as to how companies will make use of their personal information. This seminar will focus specifically on the legal issues surrounding content production and distribution.
ENGAGING ON ANYSCREEN Brian Marr and Brooke Shepard
PC's, smartphones, tablets, television we engage on every screen and on "anyscreen" now. This has compelled the advertising world to embrace and experiment with digital media platforms in real time. Digital media can also enhance traditional channels of distribution (clicks and bricks), as well as R & D functions by encouraging and mining information from current and potential customers.
