You'll also find out what we've learned in the process and what we hope to accomplish next.

3½ THINGS NO ONE TELLS YOU ABOUT CREATIVITY - ADAM CONGDON & CONNOR ELLSWORTH
Over the years, we’ve learned a few things about “being creative”. Actually, since writing this description, we’ve probably learned a few more things. For us, trying to create service elements that keep people engaged is tough. We want to share a few of the things that we’ve learned while riding the creative struggle bus.
HOW TO MEASURE UP - SCOTT BIXBY & COURTNEY DYER
What we count, counts. Join us as we look into why measuring the right things for the right reasons can provide an honest picture of where you are and help navigate where you'd like to go. We'll talk about why numbers can be one of our greatest tools when they are tied to the stories of the people behind them.
