The Event Planning and Publicity class, CM 265, enjoyed a recent visit by Patti Neumann, the CEO and founder of CITYPEEK.com of Baltimore. Neumann is an award-winning marketer and a food, wine, and hospitality influencer.

She spoke to faculty member Michelle Damareck's class about her work in sales and marketing trends and brand building, particularly in the food and wine industry.

She is also a popular columnist on these specialized topics. Neumann's blogging, digital marketing and social media strategies have won her acclaim locally and regionally. Here she is shown on the right with the BizComm faculty member.
