Appalachian Marketing Meetup: Cultivating a Thriving Creative Community

November 1, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

A meetup for ambitious creative marketers who aren’t satisfied with mediocrity

We’re bringing together a panel of local creative community builders and advocates to talk to you how they found the success in their related fields, the struggles that come with being a entrepreneur, and what they believe makes a thriving & supportive creative community.

About the Panelists:

→ Jocelyn Matthewes: Project manager, artist, freelancer, creative advocate/community builder, dining room gallery founder + curator

→ Patrick Savage: A Swiss-Army Knife of creative and communications skills, Patrick Savage has over 15 years experience in Professional Sports, Entertainment and Hospitality Marketing. His client list is full of notable, national brands and experiences. Now, as a full-time freelancer, he is focused on helping entrepreneurs and brands share their Legends and create evangelical customers.

→ Bradley Eshbach: Bradley Eshbach is a General Store Proprietor (The Generalist), Advertising VP & Managing Director (Creative Energy), and Johnson City Hype Man

Our goal is to establish a bridge between students, freelancers, and agencies in order to strengthen the skillsets of marketing professionals throughout our region. We will discuss standards, processes, and allow space for people to get feedback and assistance on current work. We are people first and want to provide a place for networking with other marketing professionals to gain support in their creative marketing career and inspire future collaboration.

We’re just getting started and we’d love for you to be involved in the grassroots beginning of this exciting new venture!

Come grow with us!
