In the digital marketing industry, we often hear our peers warning about the pitfalls of "working in a silo"—the term is almost an overused corporate buzzword at this point. Yet, as with all cliches, there's a truth at its heart so real that it bears repeating again (and again).
Many organizations—including CJ—encourage departments and teams to break down walls in an effort to collaborate and more efficiently work towards a common goal. There's no one better to teach us about the power of teamwork and collaboration than soccer icon Abby Wambach, two-time Olympic gold medalist, and FIFA World Cup Champion. As the co-captain of the 2015 Women’s World Cup Champion Team, she created a culture that helped transform a group of individual women into one of the most successful, powerful, and united wolfpacks of all time. At CJU19, we want you to Dare to Think Big—Olympic gold medal and World Cup Champion big—which is why we're thrilled to welcome Abby as this year's Guest Keynote speaker.
An activist for equality and inclusion, Abby is the author of the New York Times best-seller Forward: A Memoir and her newest release, WOLFPACK. Abby is the co-founder of Wolfpack Endeavor, which aims to revolutionize leadership development for women in the workplace and beyond.
Abby will translate her champion mindset and team-bound focus from the arena to the CJU19 keynote stage; bringing her remarkable wisdom as a leader to empower us all to take on challenges and overcome obstacles while channeling the mentality of the Wolfpack.
In a lead-up to our Guest Keynote, the President of CJ, Waleed Al-Atraqchi, will deliver the President Keynote. In his address, Waleed will share how CJ is poised to charge forward in its latest chapter as well as our approach to new privacy regulations. Join us at the CJU19 President Keynote to see how CJ is facing change head-on.
You won’t want to miss this and much more excitement at CJU19 in Santa Barbara, CA on September 9-12!
