Session Details
Where: Mack Sennett Studios | 1215 Bates Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90029
When: Friday, October 3, 2014, 4:00pm to 7:00pm (PDT)

Confirmed Speakers:

Jim McArthur, Managing Director, BoM (Digitaria)
Jim McArthur, visionary creative technologist, will explore the next wave of innovation and human/technological evolution. How will technologies like Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality (as well as Proximity, Structured Data and AI) push us toward a new future? An on-demand, data-driven future that blurs the line between the digital and physical worlds, a future in which information is truly our “sixth sense.”

Mike Burns, Founder & CEO with Jeff Roach, Chief Strategy Officer & ECD, Fuel
From A.R to V.R — entertainment brands and agencies are hungry to play with new technologies and incorporate them into their campaigns and products – but are consumers keeping pace? Both Mike and Jeff will discuss the successes and challenges of implementing creative ideas like A.R. executions for global brands, and the realities of consumer behaviors surrounding these technologies. Using new stats on consumer adoption, and both client case studies and entertainment industry examples, this talk will serve to open up a discussion among audience members on the opportunity (and realities) of putting significant hard dollars into sexy applications of new tech in the entertainment category.

Other Speakers Include:

Tony George, VP Strategic Development, SOAP Creative

About SoDA Sessions:

The event series is an idea that stemmed from SoDA’s desire to create stronger connections among digital marketing innovators in more cities around the glove in-between our major industry events. SoDA has been orchestrating and hosting industry events and unConferences since the organization’s inception and now with the SoDA Session Series, we are able to extend those candid and thought-provoking conversations to more regions around the world.

SoDA Members-Only Roundtable: Women Rising or Not?

SoDA Members-Only Roundtable: Women Rising or Not?
Registration open: October 08, 2014 - October 08, 2014

In this roundtable, we asked female leaders to share their experience and journey to becoming a leader, perceptual and cultural challenges, points of view on leadership identity, and the importance of mentoring.  We discussed and shared ideas on how to mentor and coach other women to take on leadership roles, and how to anchor women’s development efforts in their sense of leadership purpose rather than in how they are perceived.

It was a great roundtable and we are looking forward to future sessions in this series!


SoDA produces both member-focused and public events / programs.
