Our goal is to share, collaborate and discuss the latest best practices and operating principles of agile marketing. We also hope to explore how we can spread the word about the benefits of Agile for marketers. (Free wifi is available on the day at the Mindjet offices) The #hashtag for the event is #sprint0.
