AdReads Book Club & Happy Hour

Webinar Event (Free)

AdReads from AAF Omaha is a virtual book club and happy hour, where we talk about books about advertising via Zoom meetings.

Our second session on July 30 from 5 to 5:45 will be moderated by David Moore and Aubrey Schieuer (who couldn’t resist a book so perfectly on theme from this year’s American Advertising Awards – Nebraska). 

Join your fellow ad pros to discuss “Creative Blindness (And How to Cure It),” written by Dave Trott. Founder of four award-winning agencies, Dave is a master of persuasion and strategy. You can get the book on Amazon Kindle for about 10 bucks.

Get wildly creative ideas from this collection of short stories, where creative problem-solving is the ever-present proof in the pudding. To drink, to discuss advertising. What could be more grand?
