Event Details

Today we will be talking with Ashley Norris who is working with the City of Milwaukee to help organize their Small Business Development Week that they are hosting in May 2013. In the past, this conference has been referred to as the Small Business Sustainability Conference. This is the first year that they are extending it beyond only a half day of workshops and seminars.

She thought that the idea of creating a competition to engage the audience further would be a great plan idea to move forward with for the Small Business Development Week.

What type of challenge could the attendees vote on at the Small Business Development Week?

By promoting team competition and using a simple business plan pitch in a competition format, conference attendees could vote on a fantasy business plan that would benefit the Milwaukee small business community.

In the Fantasy Camp example with BizMedia, the competing teams prepared their solutions prior to the conference and the winners were selected by the attendees of the commercial real estate conference. I think this could be a good model to follow for the Small Business Development Week.

We continually ask “Why?”

and fervently believe “Why not?”

It’s a brave new world. One which requires a brave new approach to how branding, marketing and business overall gets done. We’ve parlayed our decades of experience and our understanding of the new now into a philosophy and model for helping clients connect with their communities.

Rooted in digital experience strategy and design, we work with clients on finding the right problems to solve and the most effective solutions to solve them, both online and off. All of this is delivered within a collaborative framework and business goal mindset.

In each service offering–Agency: client brand platform solutions, Lab: exploratory ideation and consulting, Studio: new product and platform development–we work to translate ideas into meaningful experiences. Welcome to Translator.
