Senior marketing manager – Cox Business, Make/Happen Transformer Sponsor
For us, it’s a privilege and an imperative: serving our communities by supporting initiatives that impact people’s lives. Make/Happen is all about impact – a “conference for doers” with bold ideas – and Cox Business is proud to do our part as a Transformer Sponsor.
We’re in the business of forging connections, matching the needs of our commercial customers to the best solution. We love that Make/Happen’s unique agenda is designed to build powerful connections as well. It attracts the movers and shakers in the corporate arena and the nimble startup community. Each has unique characteristics and cultures that, when shared, can reveal some commonalities and tremendous opportunities for advancement.
On an individual level,Make/Happen allows many of our employees and hundreds of their peers to step away for a day, meet cool people, explore ideas they’ve had bouncing around in their heads and challenge themselves to look through a different lens. In other words – connect with their personal, professional or social ambitions and a plan to realize them.
When you bring high achievers together with dynamic speakers, there is bound to be sparks. The cool thing is – regardless of what your spark is, you will leave the day with new connections and an amped attitude of ‘Yeah! I can Make/this/Happen!’
That is a lot of impact potential.
A conference for doers.
