CBI February 2020

Futurist Crystal Washington will demystify apps, the web, and social media when she challenges attendees to "Imagine the Future" during IHRSA 2020.

“Where people are searching online for clubs—especially in larger cities with lots of competition—an operator who knows how to use SEO & social-media marketing tools is so far ahead of someone who’s still relying on, say, word of mouth. Understanding digital technology, and being able to employ it to attract and engage customers—that’s definitely going to give you an advantage.”

Crystal Washington, Futurist
