C-Suite Talent To Visit Yale SOM for Annual Marketing Conference

The Yale School of Management Center for Customer Insights, in conjunction with the Yale SOM Marketing Club, is hosting its sixth annual Marketing conference on this Friday, 2/10. The theme this year is "The Higher Velocity Marketplace: Technology, Innovation and Engagement in the New Marketplace." The event is completely sold out and attended by students, faculty, alumni and industry experts. I am personally extremely excited to see that two of our very successful alums, Gina Boswell (EVP, Unilever/SOM '89) and Claire Johnson (SVP, Google/SOM '01) are coming back to Yale to speak at the event. As one of the leaders of the Marketing Club, I will have the pleasure to introduce Claire and look forward to a very exciting day on Friday.
