Breakfast with the Authors
On March 27, the Advertising Education Foundation of Houston is hosting breakfast with the guys who wrote the book on advertising. Steve Lance and Jeff Woll, co-authors of "The Little Blue Book of Advertising", will lead a lively discussion about the language disconnect between creatives and marketers. There has always been tension between marketers and creatives, and that tension is one of the secrets to creating great advertising.
Join us for an entertaining exploration into the creative process. Who knows? It might just transform your relationship with everyone in your organization. More information
