MARK Project launches Brown Bag Lunch Series

MARK Project to launch Brown Bag Lunch Series

For Immediate Release

After two full days of lively conversations and intense presentations at the 2017 Main Street Boot Camp, one particular action item floated to the top.—a series of Brown Bag workshops. So, to launch this program of Monday Lunch Time learning we will be starting with #Social Media. As Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat continue to flood the internet, many businesses are at a loss for not knowing enough to make effective use of these marketing tools—especially when it comes to reaching an out of region audience.

On May 8th, intermediate/advanced level social media users are welcome to pack a lunch and their desire to learn and head to the Erpf Center for a 1 and ½ hour session of interactive conversation. The session will be led by Renee Alexander. For more than a decade Renee Alexander has led digital and social media strategies for some of the world’s largest brands. Specializing in leveraging social media for tangible results, Renee has helped UNICEF and Operation Smile raise funds and engage volunteers as well as creating successful campaigns for brands like Coca-Cola, Charmin, Bounty Paper Towels, Febreze, Dunkin Donuts, Olive Garden and many more. Additionally Renee has shared her expertise with small business and non-profit associations leading workshops and training sessions for groups of 4 to 400. Renee, who recently relocated to the Catskills is also offering private consultations through Get Lucky Social – https://luckyrenee.com/getluckysocial/

In future weeks we will continue the brown bag lunch series with a conversation about a coordinated buy local, be local campaign, quickbooks set up, legal advice for new business start ups, how to gain MWBE status and a funding roundtable for small business development resources.

Fee for the brown bag lunch series is $10 per session and pre-registration is necessary. Please register with Stephanie (stephanie@markproject.org).
