AUTM Annual Meeting

Marketing Course

Sunday, February 20
7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Jackson, Third Floor

Before you can discuss a patent with an inventor or negotiate a license for a technology, you need to engage your audiences to start the conversation about your services and inventions. Branding and marketing are all about jump-starting these conversations.

Through the AUTM Marketing Course, you’ll learn about results-driven marketing strategies and tactics that you can start applying right away.

In this one-day, intensive session, instructors cover a full-range of topics, including:

  • What are branding and marketing? How are they different and how can you use them to advance your goals?
  • What are strategies and tactics for branding your technology transfer office?
  • What are useful, proven methods for marketing your technology portfolio?
  • What are ways to position and market the full range of your institution’s unique assets?
  • How can you maximize the effectiveness of your marketing efforts, from planning to assessing results?

Through presentations, case studies and hands-on group work, you will return to your office with new skills, tools, and ideas to help accomplish your organization’s goals.
