Last year, our co-founder Juan Alanis was a speaker at SXSW 2019 for the first time. This year, both Juan and our creative director, Anjelica Cazares have sessions up for votes in the current PanelPicker selection website for the SXSW 2020 interactive line up. We are very excited about the possibility of having them both join the official agenda for this massive technology and innovation event next March in Austin, Texas.
To get them there, we need your votes!
It’s really simple to cast your ballot, actually.
Just read through the descriptions of their sessions below, and then click on the image or the link under the image to go cast your vote. We really would be most grateful for your time and support!
JUAN’s session: Gut Check on Influencer Marketing
As the industry continues to evolve, so do the rules of engagement for all involved. Mental health and mental wellbeing are now one more consideration for influencers when negotiating their next contract. While at the same time brands continue to evaluate the validity of each engagement against increasingly nontraditional metrics such as one-on-one relationships and offline, real-life community involvement. Join us for an honest, no holds barred conversation about what has worked, what hasn’t, and what is happening right now in influencer marketing. This panel of real-world, major digital practitioners will take on the controversy of influencers actually influencing versus just pushing products to pay the bills. Click Here to Vote.
ANJELICA’s session: From Depression to Anxiety, to SXSW
A meet up for those who have suffered or are suffering with the effects of depression and anxiety, but who don’t want to miss out on such an impactful conference. SXSW can be an overwhelming experience. As someone with clinical depression and diagnosed agoraphobia, I found it difficult to navigate SXSW my first time attending. As I familiarized myself more and more with SXSW it became less and less anxiety-provoking. My physical symptoms weren’t paralyzing to the point of not attending sessions or experiences. I was no longer finding myself making “exit” plans or frantically finding places to get moments of relief to recharge. As I talked with others with the same common experiences, I understood our experiences at SXSW would have been different the first time around had we met sooner. Click Here to Vote.
