In-house creative leaders and their teams are no strangers to disruption. For many, mindset and workflow disruptions are often imposed on them in the workplace. However, some in-house creative leaders are taking the initiative to adopt effective strategies to navigate their creative teams through the peaks and valleys of disruption.
A crowd of more than 65 professionals working in creative services came together for the InSource In-House Perspectives 2018 event held on September 27, 2018, at the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) located at 81 Barclay Street in New York City. Disruption: How In-House Leaders Are Creating a Shift in Their Organization and Industry was the focus of discussion.
Andy Brenits (President, InSource) welcomed everyone who attended the event—in person as well as live streaming via Facebook—in leading a rousing chant of “In House, In-House, In-House.” Nathalie Heywood Smith (Director, Memberships, InSource) and Robin Colangelo (Vice President, InSource) rounded out the evening in facilitating a lively question-and-answer session and distributing raffle items following four presentations by Ryan Sutton (Robert Half Technology and The Creative Group), Brandie Knox (Knox Design Strategy), Ken Carlson (Williams Lea Tag at Pfizer), and Rena DeLevie (Management for Millennials). InSource sponsors including Brilliant, InMotionNow, and The Creative Group representatives were also on hand to offer their suggestions and expertise throughout the evening.
