Marketing Week Guests

At Marketing Week, help high school students develop Marketing Plan concepts and pitches. YEBW invites real entrepreneurs, executives, marketers, CMOs and subject matter experts to coach and inspire students to explore the wonderful world that is marketing and discover possible careers in the field...

YEBW's Marketing Week will be at:

University of Oregon (UO): July 12-18, 2020
University of Portland (UP):
July 26-Aug. 1, 2020



Marketing Week starts with identifying the end customer and the right value proposition, and then develops a strategy around product definition, pricing, promotion and delivery. Small teams analyze real world examples of companies’ marketing approaches. The end result is an exciting two-part competition that has teams presenting to a panel of business experts and a “lightning round” business strategy competition to find YEBW’s top marketers.

Most students in Marketing Week have a baseline understanding of business, having completed Business Week. For quality and engagement purposes, we limit seats to 30 students per MW program.


The ideal Marketing Week Guest has:

  • Experience working in marketing leadership role or a creative agency setting

  • A background in marketing, advertising, communications or PR, sales or business development

  • Strong public speaking or presentation skills

  • Creative thinking and an entrepreneurial mindset

  • Excitement, energy and enthusiasm for business
