A workshop focusing on how the transition to digital has made rapid, data-driven decision making a critical component in marketing, business, and government will be held at Eastern Michigan University on Friday, Nov. 15. The Digital Marketing workshop, based on the theme, “The Speed of Change,” will feature Garlin Gilchrist, Lieutenant Governor of Michigan, as the opening keynote speaker. Lt. Gov. Gilchrist served as a social media manager for the Obama campaign and Director of National Campaigns for MoveOn.org before returning to Detroit as its first-ever Director of Innovation & Emerging Technology. He will share his vision for using public data and technology to address the pressing concerns of our state, in a talk entitled “The Best Digital Isn’t Digital.” Speakers from Google, LawnGuru, Hyperion Coffee, Dynamo Metrics, and many more will provide actionable insights for harnessing “The Speed of Change” in a business or organization. Jenn Hayman, Director of Marketing for Zingerman's, will close the day with a panel on "The Marriage of Data, Branding, and Marketing". You can sign up for the workshop at the registration web page. There is an early registration date of Oct 31. The early rate of $50 buys breakfast and lunch as well as all the day's content. Breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. and the program will begin promptly at 8 a.m. The workshop is hosted by the EMU Center for Digital Engagement and its director, professor Bud Gibson. Gibson led the establishment of the center at Eastern Michigan in 2015. With the generous support of Ann Arbor SPARK and the College of Business, the CDE currently sponsors the Digital Marketing Workshop and a monthly breakfast series.

Dear Colleague: You are cordially invited to an October 1, 2019 expert panel dialogue on "400 Years Later: 1619 & Its Aftermath" here on our EMU campus in Rm. 310B of the Student Center. The year 1619 marked the first documented shipment of 20 Africans, whom history either describes as indentured laborers or as captives to the English-speaking colony of what was to become Virginia on a Dutch ship that ferried them from the West Coast of Africa. This is why that year 1619 holds a special meaning in African American historiography. Our galaxy of experts will weigh in on both the historical significance and the mega impact of 1619 on the evolution of the New World. This event, which is LBC-credit approved, is sponsored by the Department of Africology and African American Studies.
