Event Recap/The Man Event

The Man Event

Host / Mia / May 2016

Last night at Mia, we opened the conversation to ALL. The panel of men has been in the works at MPLS MadWomen since the start of the organization. No questions were off limits —not even the tough ones—for Moderator, Jessica Nordell. At times things were tense, maybe even awkward, and the panelists? Slightly sweaty. Ed Huerta-Margotta, Director of Talent Acquisition, Carmichael Lynch , Joe Cecere, President & Chief Creative Officer, Little + Co, Chris Lawrence, Director of Account Management, Fallon and Maxwell Twum, Assistant Account Executive, BBDO, opened up to the audience for candid conversation and insightful discussion at #TheManEvent that did not disappoint.

Event Recap / How Did They Do That?

How did they do that?

Host / Lakes & Legends / Mar 2016

Over 200 people were in attendance last night when the 2016 Mpls MadWomen event series opened at Lakes & Legends Brewing Company. It was the first time an event has been held somewhere other than an agency. This year will be a year of many firsts for Mpls MadWomen. We’re seeking larger venues to accommodate more people, sponsorship to make events possible and support from eager advocates to help share our mission.
Our #HowDidTheyDoThat? panel of speakers have taken on a variety of challenging endeavors. Everything from taking on a job with unique and unfamiliar territory, quitting a job to go freelance, starting a business from the ground up, navigating a career path across for-profit and nonprofit sectors and overcoming personal challenges to, ultimately, find professional success—not easy tasks. We asked them for the hard truth. What did they do when things came up that weren’t easy to figure out? How did they do that?
