MAIP SUMMIT


MAIP SUMMIT


 
“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”
Benjamin Franklin
 

Check back later for more info on the 2nd Annual MAIP Summit.

On Monday, August 8 2016 over 120 MAIP Alumni gathered for the inaugural #MAIPSummit, a full-day conference exclusively for the MAIP community in New York City.

Focused on inspiration to activation, alumni had an opportunity to learn from senior thought-leaders in and outside of the industry on innovative best practices, while furthering their professional development and re-engaging with the alumni community.

 

From conversations around risk assessment and workshops centered on storytelling and the design process, attendees were armed with an action packed tool-kit to bring back to their agencies, as well as to implement in their  personal development.
