C-Suite Meet with Missy Foristall

This event is SOLD OUT. Email to be added to the waitlist. 

Join AWNY for an intimate breakfast and discussion with Missy Foristall, SVP Operations at MediaLink.  This 90-minute breakfast, capped at 25 AWNY Resident Members, is an opportunity to join Missy in a career development conversation related to building your network and personal brand in today’s marketplace.  Is it really true that it’s just as much about who you know as what you know?  How do you reverse engineer your path to success based on your goals? Who are you connected to vs. who is on your personal ‘board of directors’? How does that help you stay current and relevant in today’s fast-paced ad-tech world?

Missy will also provide insights into how she planned and networked her way to success while taking unexpected twists and turns in her career based on those who knew her best…challenging us all to think differently about our own career evolution.   A 20-year veteran in media, marketing, and business building, Missy Foristall helps lead the MediaLink team in supporting process, project management, and capacity planning for successful companies that want to take their business to the next level.

Moderated by: Sheila Buckley, AWNY Board Member

Content Revolution

Everyone is talking content – long form, short form, native, adaptive – whether they produce it, sell it, place it or use it to reach their customers. Today’s marketers are executing sophisticated content strategies based on device consumption behavior, consumer’s location, and consumer’s mindset. 

The challenge they all face is to successfully use these programs to achieve their business and brand goals. 

The Content Revolution panel will bring together some of today’s most innovative and forward thinking brand marketers to talk about the role that Content Marketing plays in their marketing strategy, share experiences, and talk about their future challenges.

Women need practical tools to achieve their full career potential. We are proud to offer a custom program, designed exclusively for AWNY's mid to senior level Resident Members, called Gaining Ground. Developed by UP Business Communications, Gaining Ground offers women an opportunity to discover their most powerful, personal communication style and an actionable strategy to advance in the workplace. UP founders, Mary Jo Romeo, leader in the sales and media industry, and Ellie Heyman, highly regarded acting coach, created the program to be fun, action-packed, and achieve a real shift in behavior. 

Join us to learn how to own your power as a woman in the business world.
