The Creative Circus has partnered with Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication to offer Summer at The Circus, an eight-week program involving concepting, branding, marketing and packaging all taught in the unconventional style that The Circus is known for. Several of our club members participated in the program this past summer and had great experiences. For further information please click here.

Kathryn Harmon and David Haan from the Creative Circus will be speaking at the meeting!
David Haan: Executive Director
Dave has spent three decades in and around the advertising industry. He is a student of advertising history and has accumulated quite a few war stories of his own during long stints with FCB, McCann Erickson and Frankel (the finest Sales Promotion company ever) and postings in Chicago, Toronto, New York, San Francisco, Detroit and LA. Dave has had the pleasure (and he means that) of working with Coors, Molson, Mazda, General Mills, Nestle, S.C. Johnson, Sunkist, Visa, Dreyer’s, Clorox and Zicam. Dave has a Master’s in Advertising from Michigan State and has taught Advertising Strategy and Campaigns courses at Michigan State, Illinois and Cal State Fullerton.
Kathryn Harmon: Event Marketing Manager
Kathryn Harmon is a native to the rolling hills of Appalachia Georgia. She played by the rules and got a BA in Art, recruited for an arts college, and then ran off to the wacky wonderful San Francisco for a brief stint.
Join us next week, Tuesday January 28 at 7:30pm in MLC 214, for a speaker meeting with Derek Cowart. He graduated from the University of Georgia in 2012 and as an advertising major in Grady College, Derek participated in AdClub and worked on campaigns for Athens Food Tours and TBS: Cougar Town. He acquired unique internship experience by creating his own internship for an Athens-based business and through his participation in extracurricular activities during an exchange program in the UK.
Derek has worn several different hats in the ad industry – from account services to media planning. He currently works as a Media Planner for TG Madison on the Troy University account in Atlanta, GA. Derek will be making his way to Athens to discuss the unique work he is doing for higher education clients, how to sell your college experiences to potential employers, and hot topics to follow on the future of digital media. We are extremely excited to have him and hope to see everyone there!
This Tuesday, January 14th in MLC room 214 at 7:30, Grady Alum Stephanie Wright will be joining us via Skype. She is a 2013 graduate from the University of Georgia.

It was through her millennial research with the Grady Collective that she got a position as an assistant strategist on the Google team in New York City.
Stephanie will telling us how she got to where she is today. As a recent graduate, she is a great resource to have regarding advice on landing internships, making yourself stand out, and how to have a successful interview.
