Recent Panel Discussion

One year ago we sat down with a group of marketing professionals and business owners to grapple with the challenges brought on by the pandemic, global shutdown and socio-political upheaval that ensued. Clearly it was time for Business as Un-usual. 

This past June 18th  AIGA Asheville brought back the same panelist to revisit, rethink and re-imagine business as usual. Together we explored how to market beyond COVID.
