FEATURED ENGAGEMENTS

THE BURNOUT GAMBLE

According to a recent survey by Ernst & Young, one third of full-time workers globally say that managing work-life has become increasingly difficult. Workers in the United States, Germany, Japan, China, Mexico, Brazil, India and the United Kingdom revealed that they are working longer hours and harder than ever before, leaving very little time for much else. One could argue that we’re living in a golden age of workplace stress, largely due to the changing role of work in our lives. When work and life blend into each other, how can you begin to achieve an equilibrium that supports your physical, emotional and mental health? Perhaps it’s time to resist the binary construction (or fallacy) that is work-life and consider a new framework altogether. This talk explores the transition from overachiever to high performer.

THE MANAGEMENT PARADOX

Organizations need to be managed. However, millennials are fundamentally incompatible with traditional management practices. This session explores strategies for managing the next generation, as well as ways in which the next generation can thrive in a multi-generational workplace.

THE PERFORMANCE POINT

Ideas themselves aren’t worth much – it’s the ability to execute that matters. In this dynamic master class, you will receive the action-oriented insights that you didn’t get in school,  highlighting real-world best practices for making ideas happen. You will be exposed to proven productivity hacks and best practices from some of the most successful and productive people on the planet. Ideas are easy, but doing stuff is hard. With the right tools and practices, you’ll be able to consistently turn your ideas into reality.

THE POWER OF PERSONAL BRANDING

Have you ever wondered if your digital identity is affecting your chances of landing a job? Would you like to learn how to build an online brand that is appealing to employers? It’s been said that your personal brand is what people say about you when you’re not in the room this session explores the ways in which individuals can begin to understand their personal narrative and communicate it through social media.

THE DEPARTMENT OF ONE

In 2012, Hamza Khan built a one-man marketing department. While the challenges of earning library patrons’ attention and loyalty continues to increase day by-day, the resources allocated – both human and financial – seem to be shrinking. As such, both trained marketers and library staff members responsible for promotions must learn how to do more with less. In this dynamic master class, award-winning marketer Hamza Khan will walk Marketing Libraries Think Tank attendees through the steps it takes to build a one-person marketing team. By the end of the session, attendees will learn what it takes to craft a compelling online/social media presence. And they will get an overview of the best tools and tactics to create and maintain this online presence. With the right tools and practices, you’ll be able to consistently turn your ideas into action.

THE STRENGTH OF SOCIAL MEDIA STORYTELLING

Stories are the fundamental unit of human understanding. Yet some brands continue to make the mistake of taking their audiences for granted instead treating them with genuine care. This session explores how brands can utilize social media to humanize themselves and tell authentic and compelling stories. If you’re looking to run your own business or work to craft the image of someone else’s, this workshop will examine how to use utility, information, amusement, and inspiration as “magic ingredients” to earn the attention, trust, and ultimately the loyalty of online audiences.
