Can you handle the trivia?

AdWars hosted on April 13th was a fun and fact filled event. This team competition tests your knowledge of advertising practices, terminology and trivia. It’s anything but trivial (just ask someone from the 2017 AAF Omaha AdWars championship team from SKAR). It’s a brutal display of seemingly useless terms and acronyms. It’s a grueling and treacherous evening of famous jingles and tag lines. Most of all it’s always fun!

Congratulations to SKAR AAF Omaha’s 2017 AdWars Champions

Being Purposefully Purposeful on Purpose: How to find Zen in Advertising and Life

An advertising life can be full angst and self-doubt. Am I really any good at this? Should I move to San Francisco, Austin or New York? I’m having success so why don’t I feel happier? Is every day going to be like this until I retire? Where the heck am I going anyway? Is it too late for me to try a new direction?

Join the Co-CEO of Kansas City ad indie Sullivan Higdon & Sink to discover what you really want, why you want it and what you need to find zen in your advertising career and balance in your life.

Regular Event ($25 Members | $30 Non-Member Guests)

Chris Ferrel May 16 2017 AdBites

Keynote Chris Ferrel, digital strategy group head at The Richards Group

Our Skip Button Love Affair

Admit it – you love the “Skip Ad” button on YouTube. You love to swipe your thumb past a Facebook ad. You love the option of installing ad blockers on your phone.

And so does your customer.

By 2017, social network ad spending alone is expected to surpass banner ad spending for the first time. We are seeing an unprecedented rise in skippable ad formats that will drastically shift our approach to digital marketing over the next five years.

Chris Ferrel is a digital strategy group head at The Richards Group, the largest independent agency in America. He also is a 2017 SXSW presenter of this very topic. So join us as he unpacks the skippable world of digital.
He oversees the digital marketing efforts for some of the nation’s best-known brands in retail, CPG, healthcare, and technology. He’s bettered the digital brands of Snapple, Mott’s, Sub-Zero, Wolf, The Home Depot, the Southeastern Conference, and Cardinal Health. His efforts have resulted in many brands’ first successful forays into digital video and content marketing, most recently “Fresh Food Matters” for Sub-Zero, the Snapple “Half ’N Half Machine,” and “Reclaim the Kitchen” for Wolf, a 2016 Communication Arts Typography Annual winner.
