Understanding the Marketing Transformation from Telling to Engaging

Social Media, Public Relations, Content Marketing and Interactive. They all sound like disparate marketing services but in reality, have all melded together to form one of the most powerful communications channels for any business looking to grow. Advertising and marketing are no longer just about telling but much more importantly, they are about engaging.

Join GBANE’s panel discussion on this important transformation. Moderated by Rick McKenna, president of global marketing and advertising firm Wallwork Curry McKenna. He will ask the critical questions about how to embrace this transformation to a panel of industry experts who are on the forefront of navigating this marketing transformation. The panelists include Kyle Graham from Decibel Media; Rick Brutti from UR Business Network and Christopher Nahil from Message & Medium, LLC.
