Talk #1 - Start-to-Finish Marketing Automation 
Presented by Jordan Skole

In this presentation, we will cover start-to-finish marketing automation for Heather Read Photography, which is hosted on WordPress. Jordan will show how the whole process of generating leads, nurturing those leads, closing leads, is all handled through automated systems and processes. All Jordan's wife has to do is aim the camera and cash the checks.

He is the alumni of a top 10 startup accelerator and was the director of growth for Ambassador (another enterprise software company). He currently handles all marketing and growth for his wife's photography business. 


Talk #2 - Gulp for Web Development

Parking and Venue information

Grand Circus is located in the Broderick Tower, and you enter from the Woodward-facing doors. 

Once inside, go to the end of the hall, and take the elevator to the third floor. Turn left when you get off the elevator, then turn right and look for the signs directing you to the room. 

Parking is available at the Detroit Opera House parking garage, located on Broadway. Parking is $10 (unless there's a special event). There's also limited paid street parking. 

The Detroit Opera House parking garage is a short walk up Broadway and around the corner from the Grand Circus space. Here's parking information from the Broderick Tower website (PDF)

Note: with the M-1 rail construction downtown, it will be challenging to maneuver downtown streets and find street parking. Stay current on the construction by visiting the M-1 construction page
