Collaboration, Inclusion, and Teamwork Panel

June 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Connecting Things Orange County June Event: Collaboration Panel with Russ Rommelfanger, Renee Granillo, and Vicki Tan

Join us Wednesday, June 7th from 7PM till 9PM at FLDWRK (formerly Wayfare), as we gather around free food and drinks and good company for a panel discussion on the importance of collaboration, inclusion, and teamwork. Whether you’re a freelancer, in-house at an agency or brand, or director of a team, no creative is an island and the best projects are often born through collaboration. Topics of discussion will include fostering an inclusive, diverse, healthy and happy team; how to check our ego and embrace the critique, and tips and tools for collaboration from our guest panelists.
