“A Rising Tide Lifts All Ships - Inspiring collective online action” is a 90-minute presentation (and 30 minute Q&A), where Andrew Davis will share how working together to build the Humboldt Online Universe will drive revenue for individual businesses. We will explore unique opportunities designed to drive awareness of Humboldt’s goals and connect the dots from category growth to individual sales.

Participants will come away invigorated, inspired and excited about the region’s ability to coordinate a concerted online effort designed to grow their business. In addition, attendees will understand the effort and values they will need to embrace in order to achieve success.
