Lone Arrangers: The Superheroes of DAM

April 14, 4:30 PM

Many organizations underestimate how much work goes into digital asset management. The allure of a "single source of truth" system to "manage it all" blinds them to where they should really be focusing their investment – the asset managers and DAM librarians who will manage it all.

Our "Lone Arrangers" panel covers just these issues! This has become a very popular session at which panelists and attendees discuss and share their experiences, discoveries, woes, tips, tricks, preferences and learnings in the field of DAM as the singular expert within an organization. It can be overwhelming to try to be system administrator, asset librarian, product owner, information governance program lead and metadata strategy lead all at the same time. 

So… join us for some group therapy. Moderated by Mindy Carner, hear and share strategies for prioritizing workload, budgeting additional resources, managing expectations, and becoming an effective DAM advocate in your organization. Our panel are Sarah Lee, Digital Asset Librarian, Tory Burch, Julia Martin, Digital Asset Librarian, Environmental Defense Fund and Elana Mitchel, Digital Asset Manager, Pat McGrath Cosmetics.

This session is your opportunity to hear, share, and leave with new ideas on how to create and meet realistic expectations. "Lone Arrangers – the superheroes of DAM."

Before attending a HS DAM event, I never knew the true impact or importance of DAM. For the first time it felt like I wasn't alone, but part of something so much greater. I left inspired and motivated to take what I had learned and apply it our DAM system. I look forward to the event every year!

The Henry Stewart DAM NY conference did not disappoint. The breadth of topics and experiences covered were amazing.  I could have used three of me to cover all the sessions I was interested in attending!
