Join us in Brookfield on October 19th and 20th as we flip the script, connect, and learn how to create positive communications with speaker Ann Kerian.

We flip the script by starting with our reception and social activities on Wednesday night.  Thursday will start with breakfast followed by our education program presented by communications expert Ann Kerian.  Her presentation, Kick Marketing Into High Gear With Kinder Communication & Social Media,  will help you be a better communicator,  understand effective and ineffective feedback, create a positive relationship between planners and suppliers, and learn how to become a better listener. You'll also learn the importance of having a positive presence on your social media channels and how to make that happen. 

We will also have two post education programs to choose from:

  • How to MPI (Formerly MPI 101) -  learn more about MPI Wisconsin and its professional and personal benefits. 
  • CMP 101 - facilitated by Naomi Tucker, CMP, this will give you an overview of the CMP process and insight into questions and categories.
