Identify marketing peers at other Red Cross chapters.
A distinct advantage of being part of a national organization (in my case, the American Red Cross) is that each local market does not have to independently “reinvent the wheel.”
I am impressed as I look at my very creative and gifted colleagues in other cities throughout the U.S. I’d be a fool not to tap into their creativity, experience and wisdom.
I already have a loose network of other Red Cross marketing colleagues, but I intend to make even stronger connections in the months ahead.
I want my professional network to serve as a sounding board, a ballast and a source of creative inspiration.
This idea was originally created as part of the Rejuvenation Project, a month-long challenge to find one actionable idea per day that could help me to 1) keep my batteries charged, 2) remain focused on career priorities and 3) rejuvenate the creative spirit.
