Wednesday, March. 8, 2017: “Improving your content—and revenue—with authenticity”

 Registration due 5 p.m. March 3 

Morgan LasherWe’re driven to platforms that engage us with other people and attempt to reveal the authentic world. (Think the boom of social media, DVR, and even novice photography.) We are all craving real, authentic messages, and we reward brands that give us that authenticity. We’ll discuss how to find yours.

Morgan Lasher, former strategy consultant with the Monitor Group (now Deloitte), collaborated on international teams to create corporate management and marketing communications strategies for top global companies. After four years, she joined the ranks of Cleveland-based publication Mimi Magazine and the Vanderhaven Group, with a mission to support local business diversity. As the current Director of Business Development and Marketing, Morgan leads teams of marketing strategists and content marketers, and together they have grown the business in revenue and reach year-over-year since Morgan joined in 2010. With her husband Matt and one-year-old son Anderson, Morgan lives in the Akron area where they are restoring a 1920s home.
