LAVIDGE (and LAVIDGIANs) reap rewards by being involved
While Case, Monroy and Clark were the most visible by virtue of their roles, many LAVIDGIANs participated in the conference, and continued to stay involved throughout the rest of the week.
One of them was Senior Art Director Randy Schultz, whose work finished in the top three of the AIGA Arizona retrospective show.
“The conference is a chance to listen to some inspiring speakers who are all creative peers in varying industries,” said Schultz, who had also attended the conference twice before. “This recharges the batteries and gives me a fresh take on problem-solving.”
Case, who also ran a pop-up shop, agreed that participating was a pleasure.
“This was the first time I'd been invited to be a keynote speaker and was thrilled to do it,” Case said. “Speaking to your peers is always an honor. I hope I was able to share some worthwhile information and inspiration. I'm a proud member of AIGA and believe strongly in what they stand for in advocating for the creative industry.”
Monroy added that she expects the agency to gain additional insight that can help future social media clients once analytics are available from running six months’ worth of continuous social media campaigns.
Not to mention all of the team building that took place along the way—before, during and after the events.
“This team was so helpful and excited to contribute whenever they could,” Monroy said. “And everyone was absolutely amazing to work with during the conference itself. Stepping up whenever asked and making the whole process fun and easy.”
Schultz echoed her sentiments.
“It’s always nice to work and play with your coworkers outside of the office,” Schultz said. “It’s great team building and reminds you that you have a cool job.”
In short, the massive amount of effort it took to contribute to the overall success of the conference was worth every minute.
“LAVIDGE believes in being an active member of the creative community, and there is nothing better than seeing our team work together, bond and just enjoy each other’s company while making an impact at the event and getting some great inspiration,” Case said. “I’m so happy we did this, and thankful for LAVIDGE's support in being part of it.”
