TDn2K is a first-class organization and always brings a great deal of value to the table. I appreciate their partnership with providing useful, on-going data, impactful conferences and creating opportunities for us to network with other industry leaders. I would highly recommend TDn2K for all the services they provide!
DiscoverLink has been a partner sponsor of TDn2K for many years, and we don’t miss a conference. The Global Best Practices Conference gives us a chance to engage with top industry leaders in a meaningful way. We are proud to be part of such a top notch event.
For more than 20 years, the Global Best Practices Conference is a place to go to hear up to date perspectives on hot topics affecting our businesses. I have attended as both a corporate leader and entrepreneur, and gotten valuable insights. And, for me, the networking is a major plus. Nothing better than learning from your friends and expert presenters!
To learn from peers and their experience through the networking and the shared stories is valuable to leaders looking to move from good to great as a company.

Last year was my first to attend the Global Best Practices Conference and it certainly won't be my last. The leadership and content was top notch. This is a can't miss event for myself and my team.
What could possibly be better than the conveyance, assimilation and implementation of a Global Best Practice? Exactly, aside from more time with family, I couldn't come up with any either! There is only one best place to find, share and learn of these best practices, and that is the Global Best Practices Conference. Plan now to attend, you'll be glad you did! Hope to see you there.

"I walked away with a renewed passion to help others both personally & professionally. Summer Brand Camp reignited my passion for others"
"This conference has had the largest impact on my professional mindset in many years. If I was only able to attend one conference a year, it would be Brand Camp!"
"I thought Summer Brand Camp would be a typical conference. Little did I know it would change my outlook on where I wanted to take my career; and better yet, amplified everything that I was already proud about in my work"
"At Summer Brand Camp, instead of sun rays, we're soaking up meaningful data. Camp activities include learning how to strengthen brand loyalty, drive customer & employee engagement and execute realistic strategies"

"In a transparent socially connected world, if you don't have your people be your most accessible ambassadors to the brand, there are some things you need to work on; You can't just 'own it' anymore, its got to be a collaborative group effort."

"I can't express how much comfort and energy I got from realizing that I'm not alone in the work world. I didn't know what to expect, but had former co-workers who were raving fans. Now, you've got another raving fan. Saying it changed my life might sound a little fluffy, but I was honestly on the road to being "disengaged" in the workforce. Now I've found that I have a tribe that I thought didn't exist--and I'm more invested than ever in making change for my company. THANK YOU!"
"Before Summer Brand Camp I never really realized how closely marketing, Hr and ops all really work together. And one of the biggest challenges organizations have is that they don’t realize that we don’t work as individual departments and we really need to be working as one."
"As someone who is a more traditional HR practitioner, this has been a huge eye opener to learn about what our responsibilities are when it comes to Social Media and how even HR roles really are Marketing roles."
"Thanks so much! We had an amazing time… you put on the best event we have ever attended!"
"If you can only attend one conference this year, Summer Brand Camp should be at the top of your list."
"I was simply blown away at the value for the cost! I walked away with action items not only for my professional life, but my personal as well! This will be the one conference I make sure to attend every year. The balanced between business, volunteering, and networking, made for a spectacular week!"
"Summer Brand Camp is a great way to refresh, refocus and connect with a lot of amazing people."

Summer Brand Camp remains my favorite conference. Enough social media to be interesting, enough marketing experience to convince me that it's working, and enough HR background to showcase how adoption of new strategies matters as much as the creativity in creating them
