2018 Expo – Innovate, Integrate, Motivate

In today’s ever-changing industry it’s becoming increasingly important for marketers to stay adaptable and inventive in their approach. This was the driving force behind the 9th annual TalentQ Expo, held downtown Chicago in November 2018. This year’s event was centered around the theme of “Innovate, Integrate, Motivate,” striving to address how marketers can remain innovative both internally and externally, integrate components for a smooth and comprehensive experience, and motivate organizations and consumers alike to positive action. Students, marketing professionals, and Northwestern faculty gathered together for a night of education and conversation on this subject.

We kicked off the evening with a student and sponsor showcase where attendees were able to engage with our amazing sponsors and student-led organizations from Medill. Highlights of the event also included a presentation from Medill’s Spiegel Research team (“Marketing the Retail Landscape”), an all-star panel discussion on enterprise innovation, and an inspiring keynote address from Heather Malenshek, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Brand CMO at Harley-Davidson (“Doing What Matters…and Continuing the Legacy of an Iconic Brand”). The night concluded with a networking reception in which attendees continued the conversation over food and drinks.

If you were unable to attend this year’s event, make sure to check out the full recording of it here. We hope you enjoyed it and look forward to seeing you next year for our 10th annual TalentQ Expo!
