DIGITAL LEGACY PLAN

With Authors

Angela Crocker & Vicki McLeod

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

One hundred years from now, there will be 1 billion dead people on Facebook. That’s a sobering thought for each of us as we consider our own mortality. And while it can be uncomfortable to talk about death, it’s important to prepare the personal and practical elements of your digital life before death. This is especially true if for those who work in a digital environment.

Every professional who has a computer or mobile phone has amassed a substantial collection of data. From corporate files to personal records, good digital citizenship requires us to deal with our digital legacies.

This practical session is designed to get marketing managers, content creators, and other professionals living a digital life to plan for transitions whether that’s leaving a job or leaving this life. The workshop is based on the book Digital Legacy Plan (Self-Counsel Press, 2019) and led by co-authors Vicki McLeod and Angela Crocker.
