Putman has taught branding, promotions, marketing, graphic design, public relations, social media, publications and business at the university level for nearly two decades.

Putman will cover how to establish a brand and start a relationship with a desired audience and use social media to push forward a product, service or organization.

“I can’t help someone earn a doctorate in marketing in a lunch hour, but I can certainly start the branding thought process and creative customer service conversation,” she said.  “I’m thrilled to share the tools I have in my arsenal, and if I can help the economy of a business, I walk away fulfilled.”
