An Insider's view of Khoros

What does your typical day look like?

My day starts with a quick check of Slack for anything urgent. Daily meetings include selecting new vendors, working on implementations, supporting the business with projects, or having 1x1s. I try to block time for focused project work, daily walks, and lunch away from my desk. In between, I'll catch up on our social Slack channels!
