Fellows Forum | Oh, The Places You’ll Go! The Secrets of Structuring a Marketing Team

June 25, 2020
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Virtual - Zoom

Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Dr. Seuss' classic tells us “Today is your day,” and “You’re off to great places!” But it also reminds us that “Bang ups and hang-ups can happen to you,” meaning life is a journey full of highs and lows. Some days you’ll move mountains and other days you’ll feel stuck in a rut.

Please join us for a virtual candid conversation with the Fellows about structuring your marketing team, whether it’s one person or 15. Hear stories from the Fellows about how they built marketing teams for both large and small firms during their varied careers.

We’ll discuss how we can increase specialization of our marketing teams and our firms, whether we should invent new roles and titles, and different ways to grow and backfill a team so that it always brings value to your firm. Bring your questions, too. The Fellows encourage audience members to ask them anything!

The Fellows and the SMPS Seattle Board believe there's never been a better time to come together as a community. As such, we are offering this program free of charge for members. Space is limited so register now to take advantage of this opportunity to reconnect with peers, colleagues, and our six Seattle Fellows.

All registrants will receive a Zoom invite with login details prior to Thursday’s forum.

There are only two conditions:

1) Attendees must use the video option so we can see each other.

2) Make sure to have a drink in your hand and nibbles by your side in keeping with our traditional Fellows Forum format.
