Invitation to Marketing and Branding Consultant Presentation

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Dear Alumni,

I hope you can join us from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 in the Christie Theatre of the University Union, for a brown bag presentation of research and question and answer period with Stamats, our marketing and branding consultant. With our exceptionally strong participation rate among all our constituents, I anticipate a revealing presentation which can help us better distinguish our UW-Green Bay brand and help us message our audiences more efficiently and effectively.

Again, thank you so much for your engagement in this project.
