Key Note Speaker: Jess Flynn, Founder Red Sky PR 
From smoke signals to social media, communication has evolved just a bit since we first starting talking to each other.  Despite all the technology at our fingertips today, it seems to have gotten more challenging to reach people with the information we want to share to drive action. While communication may not be as tangible as other aspects of your business or organization, it’s just as crucial to the success of your organization. We’ll take a whirlwind tour through how we got here, and the top 5 things you should focus on to communicate effectively with clarity and impact.

NEW this year: We have two speaker tracks! Track one addresses technical brewery and track two addresses brewery management/operations. You are welcome to jump between tracks as you see fit.
