#CARU2014: the CARU Annual Conference


It’s here again!  Another conference season!

caru111406Today, I am honored to be speaking at the CARU Annual Conference 2014 (#CARU2014, for those tracking on Twitter).  This afternoon I will be sharing the stage with my long-time colleague in the online space, Chris Rettstatt, who is now the Director of Digital Content at Highlights For Children.

Our panel’s task is to help the room full of general counsel representatives for major family brands (think: Disney, Hasbro, Oreo, etc) understand what their digital and creative departments go through when developing content, while keeping in mind the needs of the young audience and all the legislative hurdles.

And, as it’s the last panel of the day, I think we will be bringing candy. 😉

This evening, I’ll update this post with a presentation of the deck we shared (although it’s fantastic graphics – ala yours truly – may take some finagling to get into slide-share in a rational way).

If you see me, make sure to say hi!
