Read both emails below: Have you ever sent out an email by mistake? Lesson here for all of us.

What do you give the richest man in the world?
Politicians all over the country have been bending over backwards to bring Amazon’s corporate headquarters to their city. Why are they hiding what they’re giving away to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos — the richest man in the world?
Amazon kicked off a nationwide competition last fall to find a city for its second corporate headquarters. Politicians offered elaborate and expensive gifts to secure the project for their hometown. Some leaders went so far as to offer to rename their town after the company. On January 18, Amazon announced the 20 communities that made their shortlist.
Winnetka is on the shortlist. You have a right to know what they are giving away.
Now, Amazon has requested a new round of proposals, with the requirement of non-disclosure agreements. Amazon's secrecy is simply unacceptable. Working people need to know what our leaders are offering to the e-commerce giant.
In solidarity,

Hello, I’m Clarke Caywood. I want to invite you to our class on Marketing Public Relations: Using Earned Press, Social Media and Promotions for Clients. This class is closely related to marketing and is an important area in job recruiting. 

  The fastest growing careers in IMC require professionals to use alternatives to advertising such as Public Relations. In this class, you will learn methods that are not generally taught in MBA programs. You will learn global press strategies and tactics, discuss promotional events, apply social media and even the dangers of “fake news.” You will learn how to work with limited budgets. We will study Big Word Data or narrative science, which will allow you to present to Boards of Directors about trends and reputational threats beyond the marketing department.

 The class is a combination of lectures, reading, discussion and client-work done in teams. In the past, our clients have included Abbott, Harley-Davidson, and Coca-Cola. You will be able to meet with the client during the quarter. The addition of co-teaching by alumni will add practical insights. You will find out how companies, not-for-profits, politicians and agencies use newsworthy stories and data for the media. Last year we worked to save lives by promoting safer vaccine methods. 

Here’s a little bit about me.  I am from Wisconsin. I earned UW-Madison doctorates in Business and in Communications and worked in MBA programs and also for two governors, an attorney general and several national and state candidates --- these were all well-respected leaders.  I have traveled to China to lecture to management schools with my wife Mary, who has run seminars for Executive MBAs from Japan and China. I like to ski, travel and work with start-up companies. I am looking forward to getting to know you in class!

Last Spring message:

What about enrolling in an IMC class with IMC Professor Clarke Caywood that can save lives with safe vaccines, fight obesity with food industry CEOs and even market safer Harley-Davidson Motorcycles for Women? What if your company or non-profit does not have an advertising budget or want to send more direct messages to the consumer, regulators, and public?  New Marketing Public Relations Management (MPR-Earned Press and Tactics as industry calls it) 472 will do just that with strategic, non-fake social marketing news, tactics and measurement and public relations. Mondays in MFC 1 PM to 3:50 PM Limited class size through second week of classes.              L                                                                                                                           
Class Client the 2018 Client (closing deal in January) will be as strong and important as the 2017 Client:  Temptime Corporation is deeply committed to improving global public health. For nearly 30 years, temperature monitoring devices have helped healthcare workers immunize millions of children around the world and extend care to regions previously thought to be unreachable. Our 2016 Client was a Vice President of Abbott to promote their global health programs with employees in marathons and direct health messaging.
