Today, companies need to go digital to survive – and creative teams are under increasing pressure to innovate despite myriad business roadblocks. Join Diane Domeyer to get a look at the results of a new digital benchmarking survey of nearly 600 industry practitioners, many of whom are AIGA members, and learn how forward-thinking companies are trailblazing in this space. You’ll also find out what skills and positions employers are willing to pay a premium for, and methods of recruiting and retaining hard-to-find creative talent.
About the speaker: Diane Domeyer is executive director of The Creative Group (TCG), a specialized staffing service placing interactive, design, marketing, advertising and public relations professionals. When she’s not managing operations for TCG’s locations across North America or speaking and tweeting about career and workplace trends, you can find her on a bike or spending time with her husband, five kids and grandchildren.
As a 25-year veteran in the staffing industry, Diane has been interviewed by numerous outlets, including NPR, The Wall Street Journal, and more. She also has been named by the San Francisco Business Times as one of the Bay Area’s Most Influential women for six consecutive years and “Forever Influential” in 2013.
ThoughtWorks at Colony Square has and underground parking deck. Public parking is located under the 100 Colony Square building accessible from 14th street or Peachtree Street. Please note that there is a charge for parking in this garage*. From the parking decks, please take escalators to the Food Court Level. Walk past the security desk towards the W Hotel entrance at the end of the mall. Turn right into the corridor just before Moe's. Once there, you'll want to take the elevators on the left-hand side to the 14th floor. The ThoughtWorks office entrance will be to the right upon exiting the elevators.
*Parking at the ThoughtWorks building can be fairly expensive. There are many private lots one or two blocks away that are cheaper. Several visitors opt for the HUGE building at 1375 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309 as parking is FREE in the evenings, but it's about a 10 minute walk.
