Stine Mølgaard Sørensen

Will the future of social media be private?

For this salon we invited Stine Mølgaard Sørensen, Independent Digital Strategist, to come and talk with us about the new age of social media.


2016 was the year we saw private messenger apps taking the number one spot on the time spent on social media. Pushing away social feeds and social platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. This transition can have very big impact on how companies are going to work professionally with social media.


The salon explored, how brands stay relevant in a time, where their audience is moving to more private social platforms. We also looked into how brands stay relevant, and creates content, which can provide access to 1-on-1 communication.

Nisse Krenchel


Pretotyping and Alm. Brand Bank’s experience with the innovation method

The room was on fire, when we had invited Nisse Krenchel, Innovation Manager at Alm. Brand, to come and tell us about his experiences with Pretotyping*. The conversation was based on Nisse Krenchel and Alm. Brand’s own experiences with innovation method.


*Pretotyping was developed by Google as a way to quickly get the right ideas to market. Google is not afraid to launch unfinished products. This gives them the ability to quickly pick and choose between the ideas that do well and those who fail.
