If you've been following along with us this week, you may be wondering how we could in Dublin and San Francisco at the same time. Well, we cover our bases pretty well. Jeff (follow him here) is manning #WebSummit, a meeting of the minds of global proportions, and according to some, "the best technology conference on the planet." (We're keeping our fingers crossed for an IdeaPaint photo op with Elon Musk or Bono!)
At the same time, only a few timezones behind him, Jen and Olivia are out west at the 3% Conference. Growing steadily in its third year, 3% brings together creative leaders from the advertising industry to discuss, brainswarm, and create next steps for how to even the playing field and the numbers for female creative leaders. (Right now, only 11%, up from 3%, of all creative directors are women.)
Here's a quick round-up of chatter, plus some epic doodling, from each conference's first day.
