This week's episode is entitled "Reinventing Events and Social Hackathons: Innovative Ideas with Corey McCarthy".  Corey is the CMO at Socia.

I was so impressed with my recent experience at EventHack 2020.  A must see (watch it on demand) "Hacking the Future of Virtual Events".

We had a great conversation about Corey's role and what Socio is, and what they had to face head on (with great success) just a couple of months ago with the onset of the pandemic.

I ask her "What were some of the leadership lessons?

I think that one of the key things that I've been trying to lean into is trust your gut. I think it's easy to overthink things. And I think that one of the first things that I realized is that there were no rules anymore. Anything that you thought you knew, just throw it out the window. And so we spent a lot of time trying to tap into that authenticity and being completely empathetic with our audience in a time that, they didn't even know what to do..... Transparency is the biggest thing because what I found in my experiences, ambiguity is a motivation killer.

We also discuss lessons for managing a remote team.  And so much more.

And as I do for many of my guests-- I ask "What's something you miss you can't wait to do again. And what's something you don't miss that will no longer be part of your new normal moving forward? Great answers.
