Digital Marketing Series

The digital marketing landscape is constantly changing, and it's impossible to be an expert at everything. Join your marketing and communications colleagues for an informal, monthly workshop. The series will be hosted through Zoom, and recordings will be posted to this page after the fact. Our goal is to learn from each other (successes and failures!), but more importantly provide an opportunity for us to connect and build a stronger community.

Please be encouraged to invite anyone from your team, including students, who might have an interest in the topic each month. There is no need to register in advance.

Upcoming Schedule

Digital Marketing Series is on pause until further notice.

We have an exciting lineup of topics on deck, but we always need more! If you have ideas for future topics, please post them in the marketing and communications community on Slack. Better yet, if you have a topic that you would like to present or lead a discussion around, please send an email or direct message to Tanya Randhawa. These are informal so, don't feel pressured to have a super polished presentation or all the answers.
