We love what we do.

What I Learned at World Social Marketing Conference
This past week, Jill and I attended World Social Marketing Conference 2017. I was just as excited to present ChangeMakers’ work on SAFE Work Manitoba as I was to learn from the global social marketing community. I wasn’t disappointed on either front. Here are just a few things I learned at #WSMC17 and that I’ll be thinking about as I work with the rest of the ChangeMakers team to create sustainable behaviour change for our clients.
