“If you are looking for well-informed professionals discussing the most important topics in our industry, PluggedIn roundtables is the place to be. Eli has a knack for bringing interesting individuals together to form a very dynamic, and unique, discussion group.”
I really enjoyed the roundtable. PluggedIn has put together a fantastic group of participants who are very knowledgeable and reputable as they are open to new ideas and approaches. The discussion was very professional, well moderated and both the roundtable members and audience were picked appropriately to foster a live and thought-provoking discussion.
I find these sessions invaluable in their exchange of ideas, experiences and thought-provoking discussions among the leading advertising, media and digital professionals.
PluggedIn Roundtables are a valuable way to share industry insights among peers. The format is intimate and an ideal setting to learn from others and dive into topics in a deeper fashion. It's rare that you have an opportunity tohave such honest and open dialogues and get exposed to new technologies and solutions that you may not have otherwise heard of.
Being a part of the roundtable was fantastic. It was the perfect environment to trade ideas and get into discussions with experts who came from different backgrounds - I loved contributing to the conversation, but I appreciated the opportunity to listen just as much
