Savvy University's College of Business shares consumer insights and the implications these findings have from a marketing standpoint. The program is launched by Geoscape and fosters an environment for business professionals that is conducive to learning, information sharing and stimulated discussion enabling participants to gain actionable insights that lead to tangible business advantages.
The first course, Why In-Culture Marketing is Critical to the Long Term Success of Any American Enterprise, takes place on February 11th, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. EST. This course will feature César Melgoza, Founder & CEO of Geoscape, along with Felipe Korzenny, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Hispanic Marketing Communication at Florida State University. With over 50 years of experience combined, Melgoza and Korzenny will share their expertise and knowledge on why marketing to high-growth segments such as Hispanics, Asians and African-Americans is key to securing growth for corporations. They offer facts and figures that impact corporate strategy at all levels of management and show why in-culture marketing should be mandatory for most corporations.
"Advancing knowledge about multicultural marketing is not just about the important statistics that define the cultural segments, and it is not just about the language issues, it is about cultural knowledge that allows for deep connections with the consumer," states Dr. Korzenny. Dr. Korzenny has published six books and almost a hundred research publications pertaining to communication preference and cultures of Hispanics.
