MYPN Power Lunch Series

Debunking Social Media Myths

MYPN Lunch Power Series

 

Last month, we had the pleasure of teaming up with Manchester Young Professionals Network for a Power Lunch Series event here at the studio. The event was sponsored by Northwestern Mutual and included a presentation, lunch, and networking. I presented one of my favorite topics, “debunking social media myths.” This is where I spend 20 or so minutes telling people not to listen to the self proclaimed social media ninjas or gurus out there. Social media is not magical and it’s definitely not as easy as they make it out to be sometimes.
 
MYPN Lunch Power SeriesMYPN holds lots of events like this one throughout the Manchester area, and they are a great way to connect with other professionals and to learn about things that could help your career. It’s a fantastic opportunity for young people who are transitioning from social and school life into their career life and they don’t know where to start.
 
We had a great time opening up our space and meeting the attendees. There were a few familiar faces and a lot of people we had not met. At the end of my presentation I was thoroughly impressed by the questions people had for me. It’s great to meet people who are working for businesses and organizations that are using social media and content marketing as a tool for brand recognition, promotion and communication when just a few years ago their position didn’t exist yet.
 
A big thanks to MYPN and Northwestern Mutual for putting on this event. I hope we can do more together in the future.
 


DIRTT Walls

DIRTT Walls at Schall Creative

Our agency is currently located in a beautiful mill building built in the late 1800’s. It has 14 foot ceilings, original hardwood floors, and long wide hallways. The character of the mill had us sold the moment we walked in. As our agency grew, our space did as well. We kept an open concept up until now and as much as we loved it, we had no privacy. We consistently found ourselves having private talks outside. We needed a solution that would give us that privacy but still maintain the open concept feel.
 

We connected with Creative Office Pavilion late last year, and they developed a solution for our space. With their design help and implementation of our new DIRTT walls, we now have the modern and versatile workspace we were envisioning.
 
We are looking ahead for 2015 in our newly improved environment, that still maintains the 1800’s character of the Manchester Millyard.
