It’s funny how networking and drinks can lead to something. It seems just like yesterday that Chris Douglas came to me and said we need a mentorship program, that connects recent graduates with marketers and business people here in the Triangle. What led to a long conversation with Chris and conversations with many other people, has led me to be proud to announce the Triangle Marketing Club.
The History of the Triangle Marketing Club
I like to think that the Triangle Marketing Club began with a few conversations that I had with my co-founder Chris Douglas, but it really started way before that. It’s origins go back to the early days of the Triangle marketing and networking scene. Back when people like Wayne Sutton and Jeffrey Cohen were still running around and building their early careers. Pioneers like them and the people who came after them really defined what the Triangle is and has become, a blossoming place for entrepreneurs, marketers, and business people of all kinds.
These days we now have the Triangle AMA, Raleigh Public Relations Society, Raleigh AIGA, and many other organizations that have become the hub for many Triangle creatives. That said though there’s not one spot that brings them altogether and that’s the goal of the Triangle Marketing Club, a 100% FREE organization that brings everyone in the marketing scene together.
Who Are We?
The Triangle Marketing Club is an organization dedicated to bringing like minded triangle marketers altogether in one house. One month we could be taking about the state of marketing, next month we can talk about those early things you need to do as you become a CMO, and next month we could be talking about video marketing…the topic ideas are endless, because so is marketing.
Marketing is ever changing and in a world where there are so many touch points the Triangle Marketing Club hopes to touch all of it. But wait…there’s more.
Not only do we want to serve as a hub for all of your marketing needs, we also want to empower the people of tomorrow. Either if you’re changing careers or a recent graduate, we’d love to help you. Email myself or my co-organizer Chris Douglas and we’ll connect you to one of the many awesome people that makes the Triangle great. We’ll base the people we connect you with on your skill set and what you’re looking to do. The Triangle has many great connectors and we want to use them to help you grow.
Follow us on Twitter or join our Meetup page here. Fail or succeed, our goal is to bring value to you the individual each and every month. Please join us as we take on the journey that is the Triangle Marketing Club.
