Survived Cross Border Summit 2023, and true to the slogan this year – it truly is open borders and new beginnings. So much power networking and hyper learning.
* Digest CBS2023, following up with a lot of items and making an improvement list for next year.
* Black Friday this week, Christian and our ecomm team is preparing.
* Lachy onboard- excited to have a new ecomm marketing manager to join us, starting this week.
* Purse deal pushing along – Thanksgiving week may make it slower
For those who want to hear the full week plan for Shadstone Limited, Mike’s company (removing sensitive info) – here it is:
Week Plan Nov 19 – 25, 2023 Venture Seed
We are grinding ahead as we enter Thanksgiving week (Thursday in USA is a big holiday, and then Black Friday shopping).
Just want to say thank you to so many of you for supporting us during last week’s intense Cross Border Summit “week” (website says only 2 days but it was 7 days of activities). I noticed all our departments doing their best to support, and the amazing work of Snook, April, and Anne on the ground here in Chiang Mai – of course Wendy too (if she ever reads this lol). We set a high bar for next year’s – and was pleasantly surprised at how smooth the flow went (of course I always pick on a few issues like hotel and airplane tracking better)
Let’s make a list of all things we think we can learn from and improve for next year’s Cross Border Summit. Also let’s get a feedback survey out to the attendees, speakers, sponsors, to learn what they liked and didnt like. That is how we grow and improve.
This coming week:
Ecommerce week! Black friday this friday, and cyber monday next monday. Learned a ton at CBS2023 (wish our ecomm department was there!) and Andres also has a ton of strategies and notes to share.
Lachy will be starting and let’s expand our reach and our goals for growing the ecommerce brands with him onboard. He has a list of ideas and strategies he wants to implement and learn.
Collect feedback, testimonials, ideas for Cross Border Summit 2024. Expo, summit, tours, markets, let’s double down and make it the best one next year.
Purse deal still pending, teams working closely together to see if it can close before Thanksgiving weekend.
Loadpipe, need to explain to the CBS2023 attendees how to get their POAP gift. Realizing I have a lot of education I need to do for them.
