Watch Now Digital Marketing Recoded (DMR) by IMPACT18, wrapped up its 9th annual conference at the ARIA in Las Vegas last month. The conference was an incredible two-day experience packed with awards, networking, entertainment and the latest innovative marketing trends to hit the world of digital marketing.

We had the pleasure of hearing from over 60 of the most knowledgeable executives in the field. All of whom either gave keynote addresses, were on panel discussions or apart of breakout sessions touching on subjects ranging from blockchain innovations and AI technology to the importance of trust between brands and agencies.

Together we defined the next chapter of digital marketing, established organizational leadership skills and we had the opportunity to recognize best in-class work and support our start-up community. It was one of our best IMPACT conferences yet. I hope each and every one of you are able to make it to next year's IMPACT19 conference in the Bahamas.

The Amazing Ascent of Priscilla Chan

When Priscilla Chan began her residency as a pediatrician at San Francisco General Hospital, she warned her attending physician, "I want to tell you up front: I'm a crier." And cry she did. "When she's feeling exhausted or overwhelmed, and sometimes when she's really ecstatic, it's just one of her ways of expressing," says Meg McNamara, the doctor who received that warning and has since become a good friend of Chan's.
