Fall 2018 Brand Breakfast schedule


Bust out the flannel and grab a dash of nutmeg, because the Fall 2018 Brand Breakfast series is upon us. Each Brand Breakfast will take an in-depth look at the resources, research, and strategies that our teams use to craft effective marketing communications at KU.


We’re also introducing a companion series of Ask Me Anything sessions. Each one will take place the following the day, and will be a two-hour block of time when KU communicators can stop by and ask us about, well, anything — the previous day’s Brand Breakfast, our preferred tools and techniques, advice about their own work, or even just our favorite lines from Die Hard. Nothing’s off the table.


To encourage and make time for more in-depth discussion, we’re limiting Brand Breakfasts to 30 attendees. For that reason, please choose thoughtfully.
