Can't Thank You Enough!


In this season of Thanksgiving, in anticipation of taking next semester off here at Carolina, I again thank all the extraordinary guest speakers who’ve joined me in “Advertising in the Age of Alexa” and the “Advertising Campaign” classes over the last five years.


The professional acumen and compelling presence of these remarkable people expanded the range and relevance of these courses far beyond anything I could ever hope to achieve on my own.


Thank you one and all!
