Cal McAllister, CEO and Executive Creative Director of the Wexley School for Girls (not a school, but an advertising agency in Seattle, WA), will lead an engaging and unique presentation on how to slow down and effectively plan your brand’s message prior to swiftly communicating with your audience. In today’s fast paced world, it’s imperative you take the time to develop a detailed strategy to ensure your ideas are spreadable and long-lasting.
Cal McAllister is a Detroit native who co-founded the Wexley School for Girls in 2003, an ad agency that likes to act more like a fan factory. His agency has created buzz-worthy campaigns for clients such as Microsoft, ESPN, Ford, Wilson Tennis and the Seattle Sounders. Cal draws on industry experience to provide real-life examples and case studies that will educate AdNites attendees on how to slow down in the midst of all the noise to craft a campaign that is integrated, unique and enduring in today’s busy marketplace.
In his upbeat presentation, McAllister will provide valuable insight for ad agency employees, marketing managers, freelancers, and any professional who may struggle from time to time to express their brand’s message and get it heard.
