Coffee, Cocoa & Convo - July 28, 2020 Recap

Coffee/Cocoa & Convo provides an opportunity for members to share insights and learn from the experiences of peers in a virtual setting. It also serves as a means for networking.

Moderated by Special Events chair Julee Attig, CPSM, we kicked things off with introductions and the question: if you had to describe yourself as a sandwich, what would you be?

The group then shifted to an article Julee had earlier shared with attendees called Using a Marketer’s Perspective To Shape Your Organization. The author shares how the role of a marketer has come to extend far beyond the traditional scope of marketing. Many of us find ourselves playing a key role in areas like firm culture, HR, and project support. This shift prompted the question, how can marketers harness their unique skills to improve firm operations from within?

Each chapter member shared takeaways from the article as well as ideas and experiences for improving staff engagement, creating better stories and connections, delivering project and branding support, and bringing information and finance into decision-making.

Informal meet-ups like this one provide opportunities for members to connect and network. We invite you to participate in an upcoming Coffee/Cocoa & Convo event. Held on the fourth Tuesday of every month from 8:30 - 9:30 AM, these events are free and open to members of all levels of experience.
