After much technical difficulty, I'm thrilled to be able to announce the second annual Shinola event. The event will be at the FK Studios the evening of June 14th. As usual for a REBUS event, doors open at 5:30 PM for food, beverages and networking, with the event starting at 6:30 PM. RSVP on the REBUS Facebook page!
The first 25 paid RSVPs will be guaranteed a one on one portfolio review with a senior level professional, in their area of expertise. We'll have portfolio reviewers/interviewers with specific experience like art direction, writing, online design, etc..
The evening will start with a short keynote address my Mark Schupp. There will additionally be short presentations from leaders of St. Louis advertising and marketing communications agencies:
David Johnson, President; Coolfire Media
Melinda Love, Sr. VP and Sr. Partner (Head of the Creative Department); Fleishman-Hillard
Jennifer Oertli, VP of VP and Director of Human Resources; Rodgers Townsend
Jennifer Simler, Account Director; Switch
Jeff Stevens, Executive Creative Director; Momentum
Each of these leaders will deliver a 10 minute presentation on what they look for when hiring new employees. They'll discuss what impresses them, and what doesn't when determining who to hire for their organizations. They'll have ideas, thoughts and suggestions about how to refine your own presentation to deliver impact and separate yourself from your colleagues.
These presentations will deliever insights whether you're just getting started, or polishing your book for a promotion or job change after years in the business. We're including all the functional skills in the business from Jr. AE, to Senior Creative Director. Attendees will learn more about how to present themselves effectively, and with impact. Last year's event was so successful, we decided to make it an annual event! Check out the video re-cap of last year's event at the REBUS blog.
This is a unique opportunity to get access to St. Louis marketing and advertising leaders. We're limiting the attendees to 75, so that everyone will have a superb experience. Bring a friend with you and register promptly so you're not left out! I'll look forward to seeing you there.
I encourage you to follow REBUS @REBUS_STL for event and organization updates!
