Hosted by Deep Focus’ CEO, Ian Schafer, the evening will be an insightful exploration of how connectedness is changing the worlds of advertising, content, journalism, and civilizations — and why it represents the next evolution of humanity. This evening event will feature 8-10 speakers giving a series of brief talks on how being connected to more people, more content, more data, and more information than ever before is not only evolving business and commerce, but culture and humanity as well. This is for anyone with a vested interest in the ways we are connected to brands, customers, society, and each other.
