Prolific North Live Event Manchester – Digital Innovation across the North West and beyond!
March 2, 2016
Everybody who is anybody in the North West digital world was there, including us!
Fun, informative and planned to perfection.
There were so many great speakers. Some I particularly enjoyed were Paul Clennel from Dock10 who spoke about ‘What is Digital?’ He gave us a new perspective on engaging with our customers and on doing business entirely! And Colin Wood, from O2, suggested that success comes from ‘doing something old, in a new way.’ I thought this summed up Doris really well. Colin gave the example of Uber, who have taken the idea of ‘getting a taxi’ and completely flipped it on its own axis. Chris and Kath, the founders of Doris, have flipped the idea of graduate recruitment on its head as well. They set up a company which employs graduates in full time, permanent positions and guarantees job security by placing them out on assignment with their customers. I’ve never seen a model like it and our customers always say that they haven’t either but that it works really well for everyone involved.
The best session we attended was definitely the Creative vs Digital discussion from Jaywing in the Moving Picture house which really left a lasting impression on us especially on the way we communicate in business and beyond.
It caused some dispute among Doris Delegates! I (a Marketing Co-ordinator and PA at Doris) was definitely #TeamCreative and Becca (Doris Resource Co-ordinator) was logically #TeamData. It just showed us how well Doris place you in roles that suit your personality as well as interests and passions!
We wholeheartedly agree with David Prior in his review article of the event, especially with this particular quote:
‘Perhaps it was simply the exhilarating opportunity, in our digital and remote world, to talk, shake hands, look people in the eye, enjoy lengthy discussions and make a pile of new contacts.
