What a way to kickoff the year for AMA Saint Louis!
There is no discipline that has been more disrupted by advances in technology than marketing. In today’s competitive business environment, it is harder than ever to stay current with the latest techniques, software and best practices. Whether you’re in a corporate, education or not-for-profit role, how you effectively reach your audiences in a real and authentic engagement is critical to both success and survival. Is academia up to the challenge of meeting a growing demand for forward-thinkers, innovators and creative visionaries? Our special guest this month is squarely at the heart of the intersection between academia and industry.
Join us as we begin an exciting new AMA year on September 19. Seating is limited, sign up today!
