June Luncheon: Knowledge is Power (and Protection) - Panel Discussion

  • The Summit Club 15 W 6th St, 30th Floor Tulsa, OK, 74119 United States (map)

Whether you are updating your marketing plan, getting up to speed on your competitor intel, or developing a new product or service you need to be armed with knowledge. While basic website searches are the first round of cuts to content, research, and trademark and copyright insight the next round of cuts shouldn’t be your attorney. One more level is critical. 

Our panel speakers are beyond knowledgable on this often skipped layer. And since the marketing department is the natural catch-all for this type of research and insight you need to have a few tricks up your sleeve. Meet our panel:
