As I wind down from the American Marketing Association Beyond Borders Summit, I wanted to let you know what all occurred.
I was lucky enough to have the chance to speak to a wonderful group of marketers, advertisers, researchers, communicators and more! The turnout for our Social Media related to marketing was amazing! We had a full room with some folks waiting in the doorway! So, thanks to everyone that was able to make it out and make this such a success. There were tons of great questions and feedback. The DFW AMA team was such a pleasure to work with and their excitement and eagerness to grow and enhance makes their organization a great opportunity for both the young professional or soon to be college grad, and the seasoned pro!
The best part about the summit was the opportunity to meet so many tremendous people. Having the chance to sit down and speak with great people like Rhonda Shasteen from Mary Kay, Xiaoyan from GfK Roper, and JoAnne Crist from Neiman Marcus was amazing. Another great thing about the summit was running into other young successful professionals like Michelle Williams, Wes Bates and Landon Sloan. Their dedication and passion for making a difference is definitely inspiring and encourages me to keep pressing forward to set new standards.
If you missed the Summit and are interested in seeing what AMA is all about, you’re in luck!
The DFW AMA Market Research SIG is meeting on May 22! Paul Maynard from Zachry Associates is hosting the meeting and it will be a great opportunity for young professional and students to meet and talk with seasoned industry pros and hopefully everyone will learn something new! I am honored with the opportunity to speak to the group about market research and how social media and the web2.0 world can be applied.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions and I will post more info about the meeting as soon as I receive the specifics!
