About the Michigan Marketing Minds
Michigan Marketing Minds is a knowledge-sharing network and monthly forum centered on showcasing, reviewing and understanding marketing best practices.
Delivered via moderator-led, panel discussion groups and workshops comprised of marketing experts and business professionals, Michigan Marketing Minds strives to offer the entrepreneur and business community with advanced marketing insights, planning tools, and operational intelligence.
Monthly topics range from online marketing and measurement to advertising and brand development.
We invite you to attend any of our scheduled events and to join the conversations we are generating around marketing thinking and practice. To continue the conversation, visit the Michigan Marketing Minds LinkedIn Group.
New this Year
Indicated by a "Marketing 101" tag, we will be going back to the basics and highlighting some of the essential disciplines and knowledge areas that all business owners should be familiar with. With this foundation, you will be able to build a strong brand. Whether you are a first time business owner or keeping up to date on the recent changes in these areas, these sessions are a must-see.
Registration begins at 5:00 p.m., with refreshments and networking until the presentation begins at approximately 5:30 p.m. The program concludes at 7:00 p.m.
