Marketing executive Bill Imada speaks at EOU March 2.
LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Career-focused events happening at Eastern Oregon University this month include guest speaker Bill Imada giving a keynote at 6:20 p.m. Wednesday, March 2 in Zabel Hall, Room 101.
Students are invited to a social hour with Imada before his presentation at 5 p.m. in the Hoke Union Building main lounge.
As the founder, chairman and chief connectivity officer for IW Group – a marketing communications, advertising and public relations firm – Imada has represented some of the nation’s largest companies and brands including McDonald’s, American Airlines, Coca-Cola, Verizon Wireless, Warner Bros. Pictures and Disney Imagineering.
Imada was born in Ontario and is invested in eastern Oregon. He visited campus last spring to address marketing students and community members.
“Bill Imada is a real dynamo and his experience is unmatched,” said Brittany Hargrove, a communications major who helped arrange his trip to EOU in April as part of her class with Shari Carpenter, associate professor of business.
“Even more importantly, he has a zest for life and an infectious passion for marketing and public relations which he communicates through vivid storytelling. Students – whether they are studying business, marketing, public relations, communication or the like – should not miss the opportunity to hear him speak,” Hargrove added. “They will walk away feeling energized and ready to reach for the stars in their professional lives.”
Imada’s keynote is open to the public and seating is limited. Those unable to attend can listen and watch live at https://livestream.com/eou. Learn more about his company at www.iwgroupinc.com.
Later this week, a career fair for education majors hosted by EOU’s College of Education is from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday, March 4 in Zabel Hall. Activities include an educator panel presentation, fishbowl interview session and multiple breakout sessions.
