Something unique I bring to the table...
- Skill - Creativity. I'm an artist myself and I've worked in music and entertainment, so I can conjure my creative side to give customers different perspective, certain aesthetic and grit.
- Personality - Humor. I’d like to think I bring humor too, but now I'm just bragging.
Pottery Barn Summer Cocktail Event. I think it really incorporates the many uses of Brandlive in a polished, well produced way.
Favorite Brandlive event
I also love GoPro’s All Things Surf because it's more personal and instead of product, it shows how people can connect, by giving fans access to their favorite athletes. I love the Instagram listening feature on GoPro pages; there’s the coolest pics from viewers.
