In these unprecedented times, it is all that much more important to stay connected with industry peers, partners and friends. This was a great opportunity to listen to others who are facing the challenges ahead. I left inspired and with some new ideas on how to lead my team and manage the business.
Thanks so much for including me! I found the conversation to be very relevant and valuable, and appreciate the opportunity to meet so many of my peers (not to mention the great gift basket & Cedric the Entertainer!).
Being nimble and finding a way to still keep the forum alive when many social events aren’t available was exactly what we needed. With these normal outlets cut off, pulling us together in a time when we all have so many questions and so few answers and providing a connection to our peers to discuss the subject and learn from how others are adjusting was a great exercise in moving us forward. Always appreciate the relevance The Room provides to how we can take the discussion and immediately apply it.
We at Zynga have had continued success with The Room’s live events as a significant ROI driver to our business. The Virtual Room is now proving to be an extremely valuable platform in giving us a rare opportunity to continue to connect with senior marketers in this highly volatile time.
Thank you again for inviting me to the Room virtual Dinner last night. The Room has become an important part of my professional networking over the past couple of years and it was nice to be able to take part in one during this unique and crazy time we find ourselves in. While I can’t wait to get back to your in-person events, last night’s virtual dinner over Zoom worked really well. It was great to hear from my colleagues, some who I’ve met before and some new ones as well last night, across so many different verticals on how they are navigating through this crisis, both professionally and personally. Having Mike Tyson on the Zoom was awesome also. His famous quote rings truer than ever today- ”everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”. Well, the world just got punched in the mouth?. What we do next, personally and professionally and as a society will change the world forever. Looking forward to the next one.
I just wanted to drop you a line directly to thank you for including me yesterday. I truly enjoyed the company and the conversation, and I walked away with some very compelling ideas. It’s a great format, and you guys have done a fantastic job of managing it. I hope to be included again soon!
I wanted to commend you and the team on the Virtual Room. Being able to liaise with other marketers was valuable and the conversation flowed extremely well in a virtual environment. I found it especially valuable to be connected with marketers from other cities, allowing for new connections and viewpoints that I can’t always get from my local industry. Being in a virtual environment created a higher level of respect for everyone, with people allowing individuals to finish their thoughts and creating a strong rhythm and flow to conversation. The insights and learnings around the sponsor and their chosen topic were as informative as the live Room events, with the added bonus of sweatpants!
The virtual room was an awesome way to capitalize on the times that we are in: the team fostered a friendly and open environment for conversation despite us not being in person. It was lovely to talk with a reputable group of people I could trust during this crazy time.
