Summer Meeting 2017 – Chicago, IL

Thursday, August 17 & Friday, August 18


Make your plans now to join us for our idea-packed summer meeting with special guest speaker, Jackie Huba. On Friday, we’ll also celebrate the retirement of our founder Jim Hughes with a presentation and surprise to honor his legacy of passion and brand inspiration.

This is an event you won’t want to miss! More details to come.



Guest Speaker: Jackie Huba

When Jackie speaks, you never know what will happen. From spontaneous dance-offs in the aisles to surprise costume changes, it’s always a treat for the audience.

That’s why we’re so excited to have her join us in Chicago at our summer conference, speaking about how to build a cult brand.

The Brand Establishment caught up with Jackie recently at her Austin home to see what this sought-after, best-selling author on customer loyalty has in store for us.
