One Penn Plaza, 50th Floor
New York, New York

6:30 p.m. Arrival and Networking Reception
7:00 p.m. Program begins. Networking reception resumes after program.

Real-time 24-hour news cycles force businesses, big and small, to be incredibly nimble in how, where and what they communicate to their audiences. Public relations, customer service and individual morals have quickly become a spectator sport, able to flip public opinion on a dime. Every day, we see the indelible impact of digital media on individuals, causes, countries and stock prices.

Join the NYC Alumni Club for an engaging, interactive panel discussion with industry leaders in digital media, marketing strategy, integrated marketing, and more as we review the rules and unruly nature of today’s marketing world!

We are excited to present this distinguished panel of UD alumni who are experts at leading digital marketing strategies for companies of all sizes through crises and golden years: Grace Thompson Leong, AS88, moderator; James Kiernan, BE97; Katie Stratakis, AS04; Kevin Tressler, AS04, AS06M; and Nicole Jeter West, BE99.

Learn more about our panelists.

Cost: (includes program, heavy hors d'oeuvres, beer and wine throughout the evening)
$30 Early Registration until midnight October 21
$40 after October 21 and at the event
