We find that our Senior Brand Leaders can have different challenges in comparison to other members - these challenges can only be answered by other senior brand members. To facilitate this discussion properly we offer email responses and deep dive calls as sometimes the conversations cannot be shared in the community forum. The discussions are often in-depth, and we find that these are better facilitated by deep dive calls between members.
All conversations and topics are driven by our community members. Topics discussed could be related to strategies to get business buy-in, social tools purchases, methodologies and best practices. If you have a topic you want to discuss, we encourage you to ask. Our members have a lot of experience and everyone has a desire to help each other.
