Steve Hildebrand will talk locally about his role in helping to build Barack Obama’s name and image as the candidate’s deputy national campaign manager.
Hildebrand will be the featured speaker at a Northland Country Club luncheon organized by the American Advertising Federation of Duluth/Superior. The event begins at 11:45 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 15.
The principal partner of Hildebrand Strategies, a South Dakota-based political consulting firm, has dubbed his presentation "The millenials. Social media. And the Obama campaign." Hildebrand and his campaign team earned a reputation for branding, marketing and using social networking to build candidate Obama’s credence and popularity, especially with young people.
The cost of the event is $15 for Ad Federation members, $25 for non-members and $10 for students. You can register online here.
The local chapter of the Ad Federation bosts more than 115 members. The group works to enhance the professional development of club members and to boost public recognition of the advertising industry’s role in society.
