#Throwback: How Will You Build Your Journey?

Morgan Stanley’s Vanessa Henley uses “braindates” to optimize her networking experience and forge deeper connections.

Morgan Stanley’s highly anticipated 2017 Multicultural Leadership Summit is now less than a month away. Over 300 of Morgan Stanley’s top financial advisors and managers from across the country will descend on Chicago next month to learn, innovate, and connect. Attendees will dig deep into targeted content centering on modern wealth, entrepreneurship, leadership and innovation.

Our latest “throwback” video looks at some of the unique networking experiences that Morgan Stanley introduced at the 2016 Women’s Leadership Summit in Dallas. In advance of the conference, Morgan Stanley teamed up with E-180, a digital platform that creates web and mobile peer-learning tools connecting like-minded people interested in learning from each other in one-on-one, in person sessions.

Using E-180’s cutting edge technology, attendees at the Women’s Leadership Summit were able to sign up for workshops, find peers, and schedule one-on-one “braindates” before, during, and after the conference. Using E-180s’ patented “braindates” at the conference, attendees ensured that they had time set aside to form deeper connections and learn valuable insights from their colleagues and other professionals at the conference.

Watch the video above to see how Vanessa Henley, Regional Chief Operating Officer for the Southeast Region of Morgan Stanley, fully optimized her conference experience with the E-180 platform that will be available to Financial Advisors at the upcoming Multicultural Leadership summit next month.

Looking to learn about new possibilities for connecting with people, Vanessa, used the E-180 platform to schedule a braindate with Jon Stinson, Executive Director and Head of Content & Curriculum at Morgan Stanley. The E-180 platform was a perfect way to for Jon to help share some of his expertise and knowledge of social technologies with his colleagues at Morgan Stanley. Throughout the conference, E-180’s platform made sure that Vanessa could easily keep track of her schedule, and quickly connect with the people she wanted to learn the most from. 

Stay tuned for more “throwbacks” and details leading up to and following the 2017 summit. And don’t’ worry, if you can’t make it to Chicago, you’ll have an opportunity to engage in the conversation through local forums.
