The final event in this year’s BCAMA Evening Speaker Series (ESS) – a Digital Agency Panel, which will be held from 6 pm to 9 pm on Wednesday, May 8 at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver – promises to be action packed! Seven of Vancouver’s brightest sparks in the digital marketing space each have seven minutes to tell us what’s happening in the digital world in 2013. The panel will be moderated by Steven Cox, who brought Pecha Kucha Night to Vancouver, and the individual presentations will be followed by by a Q&A session.
We’ve decided to give you a sneak preview of the event by asking each participant to complete a Marketline Blog version of the Proust Questionnaire, and to keep their answers to no more than 140 characters.
We’re posting one questionnaire (in no particular order) each workday, leading up to the event. Today, we’re featuring Kevan Gilbert, Digital Strategist at Domain7.
What trait do you most value in your colleagues? Colleagues who put up a fight against anything mean or unreasonable, staunchly defending kindness.
An example of a (god-awful) digital campaign that no one should emulate? http://www.scroogled.com
An example of a digital campaign that marketers can learn from? http://slaveryfootprint.org
What marketing skill do you lack and are working on learning? Knowing enough of the classical marketing rules so I can break them properly, instead of just being an ineffective rogue.
What is your current state of mind? Convinced that against all odds, a reverse apocalypse is taking place, where everything in the world, bit by bit, is actually getting better.
The Marketline Blog version of the Proust Questionnaire was coordinated by Bruce Nickson. Bruce is employed in the sales and marketing of engineering services and is embarking on (yet another) startup in the technology space.
