Ryan Gorley


Marketing is for more than just businesses. Whether you want to promote a good cause, share your free software project, or find a better career, you can benefit from thinking like a marketer.

Ryan Gorley, a seasoned marketing professional and the creative director at Freehive, will share a framework for thinking like a marketer. He will discuss important concepts like audiences, market positioning, branding, etc., and share real-world examples to illustrate. Participants will be invited to apply these concepts and may receive constructive feedback from Ryan and others. Everyone will come away with a plan to reach and persuade the people important to their cause, project, or career.
