Dr. Lisa Wright’s class presented their final Six Sigma projects for Campbell’s pilot project to Alumni Advisors. Dean O’Mara and Jill Williamson, Alumni Relations Coordinator, utilized new technology from the Cisco WebX platform to communicate with remote Alumni.

Although all presentations were wonderful, several of my favorites were the Snapchat and Geofilter suggestions for marketing.

Good luck on your certifications.
