    I Wish I Were a Cool Kid!

    Hey IABC Dallas Tribe!

    I must share, I am sort of stupidly geeking out about our upcoming March event!

    “Are you in the Clubhouse? Social Audio for Brand Communicators” with special guest expert James Nickerson will be held on March 9.

    Being completely honest here, I don’t know much about Clubhouse. And I have an Android phone which means, for now, I’m not cool enough to get in.

    Here’s what I think I know: Clubhouse is a social audio platform that you have to be invited to join by someone who actually is cool enough to already be a member. You can host, listen in on and participate in other people’s phone calls and, so far, it’s attracted celebrity users like Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart and Elon Musk.

    Here’s what I definitely know: Opportunities to learn about emerging technology and how we can leverage it for our own brands and companies’ interest should be jumped on! Whether or not it makes sense for my company and as a channel for us to use going forward, at least I need to be educated about the pros and cons, the what ifs and what’s nexts.

    So I can’t wait for this discussion. And for when I can be one of the cool kids in the Clubhouse on my Android phone. Someone save an invitation for me!

    See you on March 9!
