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 series. The series will be hosted through Zoom, and recordings will be posted to this site with their corresponding events below. The primary goal is to learn from each other, both our 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.

We have an exciting lineup of topics on deck, but it's important to source subject matter from the community and to ensure that we’re having meaningful conversations. If you have ideas for future topics, please post them in the marketing and communications community on Slack; the #general channel works best. 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 Kegan Sims. These are informal so, don't feel pressured to have a super polished presentation or all of the answers.
