As part of ongoing series of perspectives from the Wake Forest marketing summit team, this view of the inside comes from Matt Starker, a second-year full-time student.
The 2010 Wake forest Marketing Summit is less than a week away and the anticipation is exponentially building inside the Worrell Professional Center. As the Summit Chairs and countless volunteers put the final touches on preparation plans, “the Varsity Marketers,” as we have self-appointed ourselves, are hard at work getting smart on IBM.
The 2010 Wake Forest MBA Team is comprised of Katy McClure, Ian Jankelowitz, Joe Parry, Andy Rinehart, Vaishali Shah, and myself. This year’s team is extremely well rounded with significantly diverse experiential rolodexes. The team’s backgrounds range from a former Army Officer who has actively served his country to a past director of consumer experience to the ex-managing director of a top US independent film festival. We hope to utilize our diverse experiences to provide the sponsor with innovative and insightful solutions to whatever issue is thrown our way.
Even though the team is usually hard at work, with school and prep alike, one can imagine that we have our fair share of fun. What was supposed to be a standard, quick head shot picture session between classes, turned into a full on photo shoot with glamour shots galore. I have to give Katy most of the creative credit on the shoot and I am sure that a few incriminating photos will hit the blogosphere soon.
The entire team is extremely honored to be donning the black and gold and representing the Graduate School of Business in the 2010 Marketing Summit.
More updates to come as we get closer to the competition!
