Writing by Design President to Speak at AMA N.E.W. Lunch and Learn

Writing by Design’s very own president/founder Patti Purcell will be speaking at the American Marketing Association—Northeast Wisconsin chapter’s Lunch and Learn on Wednesday, Nov. 15 in Appleton. Patti will be giving local marketers a peek behind the curtain of the little-known journey a new product takes to make it to the shelf.

From the birth of an idea to consumer research to prototypes and launch, Patti will share how good concept writing and positioning play a critical role in helping innovative new products make their way to retail shelves, and how similar strategies can be deployed in marketing services.
