Pre-Conference Workbooks

Thanks for choosing to attend one of our workshop intensives at Digital Summit Chicago! You’re welcome to attend any of the three workshops. They all include an online interactive workbook to use during the workshop which will allow you to walk through exercises and personalize the information you learn to your company or brand.

Please download the workbooks now (click on the icons below) to the laptop or tablet device you plan to bring with you to the event. Be sure to download it prior to the event to save time (and WiFi bandwidth) on site. The workbook will be used during the workshop so you’ll want to have it with you to get the most out of the presentation.

You’ll need to download Adobe Reader in order to view and interact with the files properly.

“Pre-workshop alone was worth the price of the entire ticket!”
