ACI is a nonprofit association of information and education professionals representing state, federal and Canadian agencies and private conservation organizations.
Here, at Designsensory, we love growth. We always want to be on top of ways to improve our processes, to learn and to grow to meet the needs of our clients.
Our latest growth is with the DS team. There are some new faces around Designsensory these days, and we couldn't be more thrilled.
An after-school STEM education program, piloted in East Tennessee by the Great Smoky Mountain Council of the Boy Scouts of America, will soon be offered in other parts of the country. STEM Scouts, which encourages interest in science, technology, engineering and math through fun, hands-on learning and interaction with STEM professionals, will be expanding to 12 other Boy Scouts of America councils beginning this fall.
Each year, Designsensory provides college students an opportunity to develop their skills with internships dedicated to giving the best experiences possible in an agency setting. Interns Alex Hunt, Greg Simpson and Alyssa Garbien are currently with us for the spring semester.
This September, Designsensory parterned with Goodwill and A Secret Safe Place for Newborns in Tennessee to do good in our local community.
Designsensory is excited to announce that, with the addition of two new staff members, we now offer more public relations services in our all-encompassing approach. We welcome Casey Self and Melanie Beauchamp to the team! Combined, they bring more than 20 years of experience in PR and media relations.
With the Medal of Honor Convention just a couple of weeks away, Designsensory is hard at work to get the word out, to help recognize the recipients, and to make them feel welcomed and appreciated for their service and sacrifice.
It's a spring awakening of mammoth proportions, when Leadercast, a business leadership development and networking event, is simulcast live to hundreds of locations around the world. Cindy and Ed Seaver, founders of the Legacy Centre for Family Business & Entrepreneurship, plan and dedicate countless hours and resources to annually host the Knoxville area's day-long Leadercast program.
During the 2014 Leadercast, we learned about "Beyond You" leaders, who fearlessly empower current and potential leaders around them. Tenets with backbone were key takeaways, such as Andy Stanley's advice: "The value of a life is measured in terms of how much of it was given away" and "Learn to expand your celebration of generosity and selflessness." The resounding question is and should be, how can I help others?
With an African crested porcupine as a greeter at the Knoxville Zoo venue and the precocious parrot Einstein going through her 200+ paces, the Knoxville American Marketing Association's Honors Awards celebration raised the bar for fun and adventure—and for recognizing the standouts among us. The annual KAMA Honors event pays tribute to an outstanding professional and recognizes KAMA's chapter leaders while raising funds to provide scholarships for exceptional students majoring in marketing at the University of Tennessee.
