When your team is flowing, you can feel it. You’ve got an endless stream of ideas, collaboration comes naturally, and the distractions fade away. Your team seems perfectly suited to the project at hand, and together—almost magically—work keeps moving forward.
You probably know Dow Jones for its portfolio of iconic brands, like the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, Factiva, and MarketWatch. Because Dow Jones has more than 100 years of history, you might think the organization’s working style would be more traditional, more set in stone. But you’d be wrong. In the lead up to Dreamforce 2018—where Dow Jones will share how Dropbox and Salesforce can help teams stay in flow—we caught up with Ramin Beheshti, Dow Jones’ chief product and technology officer. Here’s how the established, storied company stays nimble in 2018.
Last year’s creative mash-ups at Outside Lands were so much fun, we couldn’t resist an encore.

Here are highlights from last week’s festival.
Remote collaboration is kind of like a long-distance relationship. The farther you are from your partner, the harder it is to communicate. But when you find enough common ground, sparks can fly despite the distance. That’s why we’re fascinated when artists from different backgrounds come together to create something new. Inspired by the success of last year’s experimental mash-ups, we’re returning to Outside Lands to pair up people from different corners of the creative world and see what they can make together. Here’s what to watch for this weekend.
Earlier this year, we traveled to The Gathering in Banff, Canada to meet with marketing leaders from the world’s most-coveted brands and learn how they guided their companies to cult status.

Creative collaborations allow the best and the brightest talent around the world to combine their creative energy, making bold ideas come to life in ways the world has never seen before.
