Spring 2019 Brand Breakfast schedule

MarComm staff presenting at a brand breakfast event in December of 2018

To paraphrase four wise Swedes: Here we go again. Marketing Communications is ringing in the 2019 semester with another slate of Brand Breakfasts. As always, presentations will feature members of our teams taking you through various topics, strategies, tutorials, and more — all in the service of crafting effective, on-brand marketing campaigns for your office.

We’ll also continue our companion series of next-day Ask Me Anything sessions, which give you the opportunity to drop by the Wesley Building and pick our brains about the previous Brand Breakfast, your own work, general marketing advice, our top-five favorite ABBA songs — anything, really.

Registration for each Brand Breakfast will cap at 30 attendees. If a session reaches capacity, subsequent registrants will be put on a wait list. For that reason, please choose thoughtfully.
