Cloud with words people used to describe Social Now 2019

Social Now is…

Social Now is not an easy conference to explain because of its unique format and because a large part of its worth comes from the richness of the conversations. That is due to the diversity of participants, the format (again!) and the time allocated to facilitated and ad-hoc networking.

We decided to ask participants of this year’s edition to describe Social Now. Here is what they had to say on their feedback forms.

“A must see for anyone in digital leadership.” (Lee Bryant – PostShift, Portugal)

  • “Different but interesting.”
  • “Go attend for sure.” (participant from Bridgestone, Belgium)
