     Webinar

     Presented by Rebecca Burstein (L), Director of Brand Marketing & Creative Services and
     Vanessa Salas (R), Assistant Director of Brand Marketing and Creative Services at Bentley University

    Sometimes, the best laid (and budgeted and researched and approved) marketing plans go awry. Luckily, most plans have contingencies. But, what happens when your contingencies need contingencies? When you can’t meet with your external agency in person anymore? When internal, industry, national and global issues take center stage? How can you keep your plan moving forward when changes keep coming? Hear how the in-house agency at Bentley University approached—and ultimately developed—a pandemic-proof strategy to refresh its brand during an unprecedented year of change.

  • Mastering Remote Communication: Establishing Presence in a Virtual World

    Webinar

    Presented by Shawn Fagan, Executive Coach, GK Training

    It may sound strange to talk about presence in a remote communication webinar, since the one thing we are not right now is physically present with one another. But if you define presence as the impression you make, you can find ways to improve your “executive presence,” even at a distance. In this highly interactive session, executive coach Shawn Fagan of GK Training will review concrete skills to boost the impressions you make without being in the same room with others—things like bedrock remote-communication habits, on-camera techniques, the five P’s of vocal variety, three steps for interjecting effectively, and the role of kinesthetic learning. Aside from camera skills, all of these are transferable to in-person communication when we get back to doing that again.

  • Making Time for Creative

    Webinar

    Presented by J.D. Schupp, Head of Production at Walmart Films, Walmart 

    Great creative takes great ideas, but it also takes something that’s much harder to make…time. Expedited timelines, unrealistic deadlines, and sometimes-impractical expectations of what’s possible are all too common in our fast-paced “have to have it now” world. With no sign of a slowdown, how do you make time? In this relatable webinar, Walmart Films’ head of production, J.D. Schupp, talks about the good, the bad and the serendipitous when it comes to producing big ideas with a small team under the unrelenting pressures of time. Best of all, hear how the crew at Walmart Films maintain their motivation (and the smiles on their faces) at the end of the day.

  • Thinking Beyond the System

    Conference

    Presented by Roger Hyde, Adjunct Professor at NYU Tisch Art & Public Policy

    How many times have we heard the cliché: “think outside the box”? And yet, how many times has true creative potential been mired in conventional expectations of staying within the guidelines? From a creative’s perspective, it’s hard to know whether the earth is flat or not if no one has ever been to the edge to see it for themselves. This session challenges conventional thinking around what constitutes creative success and failure, and how we might refocus our energy from enforcing guidelines to truly inspiring teams to reach further and further.
