Defining Connecticut 2: The Big Deal




{ an AIGA Connecticut / CADC collaboration } 

Defining Connecticut 2:

the BIG deal  /  How National work gets done in Connecticut


Following the runaway success of last year's "Defining Connecticut: Legends" event, AIGA Connecticut and CADC have come together again to bring the second installment in the series--"Defining Connecticut: The Big Deal".

Join us for a lively forum with four of Connecticut's most savvy communications, advertising, branding and interactive professionals. Our panelists are respected leaders from companies throughout Connecticut, and creators of nationally-deployed, impactful and effective campaigns. They know what it takes to perform at the highest level and will share insights with us on what it takes for you to do the same.

We'll also explore the process for getting, doing and keeping high profile, national work right here in our small State. You'll hear the stories behind the campaigns and walk away with new ideas that could strengthen your own work and perspective.

En lieu of a formal Q&A segment, we will repeat the convention from our last Defining Connecticut event. Audience members will be encouraged to participate openly in the discussion by passing forward questions for on-the-fly responses throughout the event. Last time we did this, the audience was instrumental in shaping the conversation in surprising ways.
