On Thursday, September 10, 2015 local professionals attended the 3rd annual one-day conference Marketing Mania at the Nineteenth Century Club in Oak Park. Guests had the chance to interact with other like-minded small business owners, entrepreneurs and non-profit leaders to identify prospects, messages that will resonate most with them, and how to effectively communicate that message using social media.

Our very own Marc Stopeck, Sales Representative for Wednesday Journal Inc. returned for his third year as a speaker at Marketing Mania, Marc gave the attendees tips he has learned throughout his 25 years helping local businesses and organizations connect to their community and market their products and services. Marc is an award winning cartoonist and illustrator, a teacher and a playwright.

The other expert panelists were Peter Barber, a nationally recognized marketing professional with over 30 years of leadership experience and Amber Dewey Schultz, founder of Clique Social + Design.
