    How Lagunitas is Disrupting the Beverage Industry

    How Lagunitas is Disrupting the Beverage Industry

    When your brand is highly dependent on event marketing to grow and a pandemic hits, what do you do? Paige Guzman, the chief marketing officer at Lagunitas Brewing Company, knows the answer all too well. She had to pivot the brand in her new role and find different paths to consumers. The result is a disruptive approach to the beverage industry that has elevated Lagunitas from a regional craft brew to a global brand taking the concept of craft beverages to new heights.
    Guzman joined Digging Deeper to talk about the pandemic pivot, how digital has infused a new approach and connection to its consumers, and what shaking up the beverage space is really like.

    Audio Exclusive: Cornett's Black History Trivia Night

    Audio Exclusive: Cornett's Black History Trivia Night

    In the first of new audio-only, exclusive episodes of Digging Deeper, host Jason Falls reports back on Cornett's recent Black History Trivia Night event. The entire agency got together at a local art gallery to have a bar trivia style learning experience around Black History. It’s part of an ongoing effort at Cornett for us all to recognize, learn and embrace a more diverse cultural, racial and social makeup, as an agency in service to our employees and clients, but also just as citizens of the world and our community. 
    So what did the Cornett team learn at our Black History Trivia Night event? Quite a bit. And we had such a good experience learning and socializing together around this idea, we wanted to share it with all of you. 
    Cornett’s Black History Trivia Night organized by our Action Plan team. Their broad task is to keep us on task and not just pay lip service to the agency improvement initiatives we’ve started in the last 3-4 years. The team, which consisted of Audrey Moeglin from our account planning team, Camille Wright, a junior graphic designer here, Sara Reising our creative resource manager, and Tajah McQueen who is on my team as a digital engagement manager. 
    The rules were set like bar trivia. The winning team took home bragging rights. We all took home more knowledge and understanding of Black History.
