Crowdsourcing a Creative Enterprise: Workshops in NYC Oct 25-26 (Discount Coupon)

Ross Dawson, internationally recognized authority on crowdsourcing, will be leading workshops on crowdsourcing on Thursday, October 25 and Friday, October 26 in New York City.

The workshops are brought to you by Crowdsourcing Week, a global event focused on how groups of people known as “The Crowd” can make outstanding contributions through a collaborative business model at the enterprise level.

“The rise of crowdsourcing is changing the world. In particular, crowdsourcing is transforming corporate marketing and the role of agencies, and how media and content are created. Understanding in detail the best examples of success in these fields opens up new pathways to creating massive value,” Dawson says. Dawson is the co-author of Getting Results From Crowds: The definitive guide to using crowdsourcing to grow your business.

The two New York workshops will be held at the Interactive Advertising Bureau at 116 27th St.

  • Workshop I – Thu. Oct 25th: Crowdsourcing for Marketing in Enterprise & Agencies
  • Workshop II – Fri.  Oct 26th: Crowdsourcing for Media and Content 

Regular admission for each half-day workshop is $195.

The New York City events’ supporting sponsors are 99designszooppaCrowdFlower & eYeka. The workshops are the first in a series that will be held in coming months in Paris, Stockholm, Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, Amsterdam, and Berlin.

The series will culminate in Crowdsourcing Week® Asia 2013, an international conference to be held in Singapore in April, 2013. The programs are the brainchild of Epirot Ludvik Nekaj, CEO of Ludvik + Partners, an advertising agency that is itself crowdsourced. The company’s chief operating officer, Rose Kemps, is the co-founder of Crowdsourcing Week. Kemps is an international business strategist based in Singapore.

“It’s an exciting launch for the Crowdsourcing Week team. We’re about to change the way the world works. Crowdsourcing is rapidly expanding as a disruptive practice in the working world and we see more and more companies joining the revolution,” Nekaj says. “Crowdsourcing promises to revolutionize international business practices by putting the entire world within ‘commuting distance’ of a project or even an entire company.”
