One of the biggest challenges facing senior marketing executives is finding great marketing talent. Are you on the right track to move up the ranks or to find your dream marketing career? Should you be specializing, and if so, in what? What skills and experience are in demand and what areas are in oversupply? What are leaders looking for in the talent they are hiring?
Join us and our panel of experts on Wednesday, April 11 as the Calgary Marketing Association as we discuss these issues and more. Participants will not only get the opportunity to learn from our experts but also brainstorm these challenges with the peers at their table. It’s a chance to learn, network and participate in one of 2018’s top marketing challenges.
Before becoming a university professor at Mount Royal University, David spent almost two decades in product management and marketing roles primarily in the technology sector working for giants like Bell Canada and Rogers Communications.
As a professor, it struck David that education and product management have a lot in common. Each year, universities and colleges churn out really expensive products called students; some which find a marketing career, but many who don’t. This was the inspiration for David’s brainchild – the Designing YOU series and Marketing YOU career guide.
