Gini Dietrich (http://www.twitter.com/ginidietrich), co-author of Marketing in the Round, will be our next Third Tuesday speaker.
Over the past two years, she has built a large online following at her blog, Spin Sucks (http://spinsucks.com/). She has launched Spin Sucks Pro (http://spinsuckspro.com/) as a platform for marketing expertise tailored to the needs of senior executives. She finds time to co-host the Inside PR (http://www.insidepr.ca/) podcast. And she manages to hold down a day job as CEO of Arment Dietrich (http://www.armentdietrich.com/).
With all this on the go, Gini found the time to co-author with Geoff Livingston (http://www.twitter.com/geoffliving) a book that every contemporary marketer should read: Marketing in the Round (http://marketingintheround.com/), a practical guide to integrating the traditional and new tools of marketing into a coherent, effective whole.
And now, Gini is making the time to be our next speaker at Third Tuesday on July 24. Gini offers great insight into marketing in the connected era. I hope you'll join us to hear and meet her.
As usual for Third Tuesdays, we'll roughly follow this agenda:
5:30 - 6:00 Doors open - Meet Gini, book signing, and network with others who share your interests
6:00 - 7:00 Speaker introduction & presentation, followed by questions and discussion with participants
7:00 - 8:00 Book signing with Gini and networking
Attendees will receive a copy of Marketing in the Round
That's right. Your admission fee pays for a copy of the book. All attendees will receive a copy of Marketing in the Round. That gives you not just the opportunity to hear Gini speak, but also to meet her and have her personally dedicate and sign your copy of the book.
Thank you to the Sponsors who support Third Tuesday
As you know, Third Tuesday is a community-oriented, volunteer-driven event.
