Caffeinated Connections: A CEO Perspective – Communications & Branding Amid COVID-19 and Racial Conflict
The COVID-19 pandemic and the global recession it triggered lumbers into its fifth month. We now have seen massive public protests fueled by systemic racism and ignited by vivid images of police brutality. Glaring health disparities among black Americans revealed by the pandemic have now merged these two incredible events. Both will remain white-hot through November’s presidential election. These are exceptional times, especially for professional marketers and communicators.
Please join us for the next Caffeinated Connections event on Thursday morning, June 25th from 8:00 – 9:00 am, featuring three Cincinnati-area CEOs from three different market segments who each bring different perspectives and life experiences as they guide their enterprises through today’s troubled waters.
