Behind The Scenes: MD Anderson’s Nobel Prize Campaign

The Nobel Prize is the most prestigious award in the world and the nomination and selection process is notoriously secretive. The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center team prepared a turnkey plan to activate all channels of communication in the event the organization's Jim Allison, Ph.D., received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his groundbreaking discoveries in the field of immunotherapy. The plan was put in motion early in the morning of Oct. 1, 2018.

Laura Harvey, executive director for Internal Communications, Megan Maisel, executive director for Digital Communications and Content, and Brette Peyton, executive director for Public Relations, will take you behind the scenes and share how the MD Anderson team prepared for and executed on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

A Dream Realized: Progressing Your Passion Into a Successful & Fulfilling Career

Passion and purpose – these are essentially what drive us in life, regardless of our pursuits, talents, field of work or career paths. But how do we realize our professional goals and dreams to enjoy the results of our hard work – and ultimately, the reward of a personally fulfilling career? What if we’re starting from the beginning, faced with challenging odds, or taking a risk in a new environment? There’s no ‘one size fits all’ path to success, but we can strategically plan to make the journey more effective as we progress.

Jennifer Cannon, Global Marketing Manager at Gyrodata, joins The Business Communicators to provide insight on how to successfully build a communications career and navigate the unknowns of an unfamiliar industry. Sharing her experiences in the engineering and oil and gas fields, Jennifer enlightens listeners with practical advice on transitioning from a novice to a well-equipped brand ambassador in a new organization – especially in a technical industry.
