Spreading the “Digital Word”
You might have guessed by now, that we’re pretty passionate about digital technology…
We believe fervently in the immense positive impact that harnessing digital the right way can have on brands AND businesses, and we’re committed to sharing that message with anyone who wants to hear it. In true Caribbean Ideas style, we decided let’s not just sit around and wait for people to ask about it, so we’ve taken it to people in our own ways.
Caribbean Digital Expo
In August of 2011, our co-founder Chike Farrell decided to commit the company to the huge task of creating the Caribbean’s first major conference on digital marketing and business issues. A few short months later on November 22nd, the inaugural Caribbean Digital Expo (CDX) was held, headlined by Facebook’s Global Head of Agency marketing, along with 25 other global and regional speakers.
This sold out event attracted over 350 persons, ranging from marketers and CEOs interested in harnessing digital better, to entrepreneur, ad agencies and other digital industry stakeholders. Click here for pictures and highlights.
With the first CDX under our belts, the team is already working on taking the event to a broader audience and ensuring that the digital word is spread far and wide via this vehicle.
The Caribbean Ideas team has also responded to a different kind of demand. Demand for smaller, more intimate workshops for companies and organizations who want to build understanding and / or competencies in specific areas.
From crafting social media policies and crisis response plans, to the nuts and bolts of social media, our team has provided organizations with in depth workshops around specific topics. Interested in a workshop for your organization? Contact us here.
