Speaking Your Brand!
"Unlike the Kevin Costner film Field of Dreams, in the business world if you build it, they won’t come. Learn how speaking your brand and telling your story will engage your customers and grow your business."
Join us for speakers Matt Garner and Courtney Keeffer from Longboard Public Relations.
Matt spent 24 years in the Army. The first half of his career he was a helicopter pilot and the second half he was a Public Affairs Officer, a PR guy, for the Army. He published newspapers on two continents, taught Soldiers how to speak with the media and worked with local, regional, national and international press throughout the world.
Matt graduated in Communication and English from Weber State College in 1990. He enjoys surfing (hence the name of the company), building custom furniture, running, biking and good chocolate.
Courtney has been in front of, behind or alongside cameras since she was in fourth grade. She was the face of Fort Huachuca’s TV station when we lived in Southern Arizona and she went to national championships in a variety of academic competitions.
Courtney graduated Cum Laude with departmental honors in Public Relations and Advertising from Weber State University in 2015. She also ran for Weber State’s cross country and track teams for two years and continues that by coaching junior high athletes at Mount Ogden. Courtney never did like surfing, but still enjoys running. She prefers European chocolate.
