In the blink of an eye, Collaborate 2021 is over, and we’re reflecting on a dynamic event jam-packed with insightful keynotes, fascinating roundtable discussions, and engaging executive panels. 

We loved having you with us at the event, chatting with you at our virtual booths, and seeing your amazing selfies. Day two proved to be an exciting day, and we’re taking the time to reminisce on our favorite moments. 

How we can become collaborative powerhouses 

One of our favorite sessions of the entire event was from leadership expert Rob Cross on the different ways collaboration supports outstanding teams. With twenty years of research from over 300 organizations under his belt, we were all ears for Rob’s insight into what makes a team successful. 

We were surprised (and a little shocked) to see how and why teams are breaking down. With real-life examples of teams cracking under pressure, there was plenty of fascinating insight into how to avoid these common blockers in your own organization. 

How very different teams manage the creative process 

It was amazing to witness some of the best creative minds in the business — like Nickelodeon and Monumental Sports — share their perspectives on the complexities of today’s work environment and what the best in class are doing to accomplish more with less.

Hosted by Esther Flammer, Wrike’s Head of Marketing at Citrix, these creative forces discussed everything from the biggest challenges of maintaining creativity and productivity in digital, remote, and hybrid environments to using technology to increase efficiencies and create work-life balance in the modern workplace. We don’t know about you, but this is one we’ll definitely be watching back

Bringing teams together with collaborative work management

We loved hearing Sherrie Besecker, Digital Program Manager at Syneos Health, speak about how they bring together thousands of employees into one platform to connect, communicate, and work together in real time. 

With hundreds of hours of lost time saved every year, Sherrie showed us how her company uses collaborative work management to manage critical, sensitive, end-to-end workflows that guarantee a great outcome for both internal and external stakeholders.

Welcoming you all to Collaborate 

Our favorite part of Collaborate 2021 was seeing all our attendees engaging with the platform, the sessions, and our virtual booths. You were the true highlight of the event! 

We can’t wait to bring you to our next work management conference (hopefully, in person!), but in the meantime, you’re welcome to watch Collaborate 2021 back with our on-demand sessions. Whether you were there in real time and want to re-watch something or you couldn’t make the live event, head here for access to Collaborate On-Demand
