How are big businesses reaching Generation Z? Three students from the Elliott School of Communication at Wichita State University will present three PechaKuchas targeting their age group. A PechaKucha is a popular storytelling format made up of 20 slides, with 20 seconds of commentary per slide.

Join Wichita Professional Communicators for a virtual program exploring how big businesses, and the big agencies they employ, have been changing their approach to appeal to Gen Z shoppers. WSU students Garrett Chadd, Jane Lickteig and Jadyn Stutey will present their PechaKucha case studies showing how REI, Patagonia’s Worn Wear and Wrangler Jeans have turned their marketing upside down to appeal to Gen Z.

Our monthly program will take place virtually from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3 on Zoom. (Attendees will receive link via email.)
