Digital Agency Panel #1 of 7 – Dean Elissat, Engine Digital

April 29, 2013

by Bruce Nickson

The final event in this year’s BCAMA Evening Speaker Series (ESS) – a Digital Agency Panel, which will be held from 6 pm to 9 pm on Wednesday, May 8 at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver – promises to be action packed! Seven of Vancouver’s brightest sparks in the digital marketing space each have seven minutes to tell us what’s happening in the digital world in 2013. The panel will be moderated by Steven Cox, who brought Pecha Kucha Night to Vancouver, and the individual presentations will be followed by by a Q&A session.

We’ve decided to give you a sneak preview of the event by asking each participant to complete a Marketline Blog version of the Proust Questionnaire, and to keep their answers to no more than 140 characters.

We’ll be posting one questionnaire each day leading up to the event. So, in no particular order, first up is Dean Elissat, VP Client Engagement, Engine Digital.

What trait do you most value in your colleagues? Willingness to be successful.

An example of a (god-awful) digital campaign that no one should emulate? Any brand that re-targets. Enough already.

An example of a digital campaign that marketers can learn from?

What marketing skill do you lack and are working on learning? Tolerance.

What is your current state of mind? Why can’t you see what we see in the digital space?

The Marketline Blog version of the Proust Questionnaire was coordinated by Bruce Nickson. Bruce is employed in the sales and marketing of engineering services and is embarking on (yet another) startup in the technology space.
