Edition: October 23, 2016
Every week, I like to find Chicago networking events that will help me meet my business and personal goals. Since I’m in marketing and currently developing a 2017 Marketing Plan strategy, my main objectives are to learn:
- lead generation
- content creation
- partnership opportunities for speakers and writers
- best practices for marketing
So, since I do this, I thought I would share the top marketing events this week for my fellow marketing strategy and execution colleagues in Chicago.
A1: Chicago! I think it’s a very strong and growing industry here. There are always creative marketing events, ads, giveaways #Adweekchat
