High Monkey at 2017 MIMA Summit

High Monkey and our search partner, Funnelback, attended the 2017 Minnesota Interactive Marketing Association (MIMA) Summit on October 12, 2017. The annual event took place in downtown Minneapolis at the Hilton Hotel and was well attended by several hundred of the Twin Cities marketing, digitial interactive, and communications best and brightest. 

L-R: Joel Baglien (High Monkey), Miranda Rasmussen (High Monkey), Erik Bredesen (High Monkey), and Will Noble (Funnelback)

High Monkey and Funnelback shared a sponsor table right outside the banquet room's doors. During the event we enjoyed conversations with marketers from all over the metro about content strategy, search, accessibility and our upcoming workshops. 

Our team particularly enjoyed the Lunch Keynote speaker, Morgan Spurlock of the movie, "Supersize Me" fame. Spurlock gave a fantastic Keynote on storytelling and content creation from the viewpoint of a documentary filmmaker--His examples even left some of us with teary eyes. 


We had a special treat at our booth for those who stopped to chat with us: tropical Jelly Belly's and Banana candies (Want some? We'll be bringing candy to SharePoint Saturday Twin Cities later this month and the Minnesota Government IT Symposium in December!)


Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth during the event and the folks from MIMA that made the event so great. We'll see you next year, MIMA!

Chad's Bio Coming Soon!
