The thing that makes us most excited about hosting a digital CJU? The ability to spread the magic further and wider, including more of our global community and talent in the process.
Although the home base for our annual conference, CJU, is near our US head office in sunny Santa Barbara, California, the digital format allows greater involvement with our offices—and partners—across Europe, including: London (our European headquarters), Madrid, Munich, Paris, and Stockholm.
But while global partners and colleagues have been welcome to join the global sessions of CJU20 Digital Series, the evening timing in Europe made it harder for some to join us. That's why we're hosting the CJU20 Digital Series Encore for Europe—an afternoon session with a European twist on the highlights from CJU20 Digital Series 1 and Series 2.
Plus, for ultimate availability, we'll be making the CJU20 Digital Series sessions available on-demand soon—we'll let you know when they're ready!
