Greetings once again, fellow Grand Rapids marketing professionals! We are already into our second week of May, and that means it's time to "Spring" right into some great networking opportunities! Here are a few we are making note of for this week. If you happen to see us around, make sure to stop and let us know you follow all the great events we post here on the weekly planner.
Death to Boring B2B Marketing
The American Marketing Agency is hosting "Death to Boring B2B Marketing" on Tuesday, May 9th from 11:30-1 at the Grand Rapids Art Museum. Learn how to reinvent your marketing efforts from Cliff Seal of Salesforce. Lunch will be served and you can save your seat right here. Tickets range from $15-$35.
Network and Meet the GRYP Board!
Love attending the events hosted by Grand Rapids Young Professionals? Or, have you not come to an event yet because you were not sure what you were getting yourself into? Either way, this "Meet the Board" is the event for you! It's a happy hour for any interested new members to learn how to get more involved with GRYP. It's from 6-9 PM on Tuesday at the SpeakEZ Lounge and they'd love for you to let them know you're coming right here. It's free, but bring a few bucks for your booze.
Let us Help Bust that Writer's Block!
We're happy to be hosting another fun MeetUp, "Busting Writer’s Block with Applied Improv Techniques." this week! Not a comedian? Not a problem -- this session isn't for experts, it's for business professionals like you! Improv can help improve your observation, communication, and leadership skills for business. It's true, check out this article from Entrepreneur about improv for building business skills.
In this fun, one-hour session on Wednesday, ManoByte's very own Megan Prangley will show you improv techniques that can help you create captivating new business content. If you're lacking in ideas or if creating content is as fun as pulling teeth, then you need to attend this MeetUp. Fun starts at 5:30 and we only have a few spots left!
Mark Your Calendars now for our Next HUG!
Our next Grand Rapids HubSpot User Group (GRHUG) is coming up! Learn how to close more business and grow your sales efforts on Monday, May 22nd from 3-5 PM. Our fearless leader, Kevin Dean, will be presenting everything you need to do to ensure success for your sales teams so you can grow your business effectively. We'll be over at Schuler's Books on 28th Street, and seating is limited, so RSVP right here to lock in your spot. It's free, and light snacks and refreshments will be served. (And don't worry, you don't need to use HubSpot to attend, this is for everyone looking to grow their sales efforts.)
Have a great week, Grand Rapids marketers!
