This year’s Marketing Week was a huge success. It featured interesting panels and a fun networking event. That success can be partially attributed to one outstanding student: Sarah Lowery. Because of her amazing work during Marketing Week, she has been selected as October’s Member of the Month.
As one of the Integrated Marketing Committee directors, Sarah contributed to all five of this year’s Marketing Week events. These events ranged from an alumni panel to various workshops, and even an industry tour.
Sarah’s work involved: engaging students, planning themes, contacting speakers, organizing volunteers, planning locations, and much more. Her planning started in September and didn’t end until Marketing Week was officially over. This job required incredible time management, organizational, and leadership skills; all of which are skills Sarah has!
When asked why she chose to take on such a large project her answer is simple: she wanted to get more involved. Her first year at BCIT involved the Ads and Promo committee and being a case lead, but Sarah was looking for a new way to put her skills to the test.
Looking ahead, Sarah is already preparing for the Regional Sales Conference in January. The MA is sure that this event is in safe hands and that it will be another success for the Integrated Marketing committee!
