A CONFERENCE FOR 20,000 PEOPLE

GOOGLE NEXT 2018

THE BRIEF

Google partnered with Jack Morton to produce their keynote and ancillary programs for Google Next 2018.

THE SOLUTION

We went beyond their ask and did something extraordinary that hasn't been done before in a keynote. We created 4 different screens and containers onstage to make the keynote presentation more compelling and interactive for the audience. 

The clients were so happy that they had increased our scope for Google Next 2019, bringing in breakouts and the evening event.

MY RESPONSIBILITY

I was the Production Coordinator on the team, specifically worked on project managing the program overall for Jack Morton - onboarding vendors, communicating information to them, managing their invoices and payment, managing insurance and music licensing for the event, leading a team to book the crew's travel, housing and registration, management of office supplies and production assistants. Onsite, I was a deck manager for the keynote.

2 WEEK PROGRAM WITH 20 MICRO EVENTS

GOOGLE-NCAA PARTNERSHIP: ADVANCED BRACKETOLOGY

THE BRIEF

Google had recently created a partnership with NCAA and wanted students from around the country to learn more about their various platforms, such as Kaggle, that can help create their march madness bracket through machine learning.

THE ACTIVATION

We visited 20 universities around the country in the span of 2 weeks and brought Google engineers and speakers on their campus to teach them about Advanced Bracketology.

MY RESPONSIBILITY

I was a co-lead for this program, staffing the Technical Directors, producers, brand ambassadors and student representatives for each school, briefing them and sending them an "event kit" for each university - which includes the pull-up banners, Chromebooks to present with and do registration for, prizes for students who participate, swag to give away, and food ordered to serve the students.
