There’s no doubt that video games are popular. While some view them as an imagination-sapping waste of time, Acme Nerd Games has a very different perspective: Games are a means to improve lives. Games engage, teach and can change behaviors. Organizations should deploy the power of games to do good in the communities they serve.
Mary will shared her journey from a seasoned traditional marketer to a business owner that aims to turn what some see as a social pariah into a tool that helps people thrive.
About the speaker:
Mary Romolino is a partner at Acme Nerd Games. Mary’s successful marketing career took her from the skyscrapers of Chicago to the brainy, laidback city of Madison, WI and from the conference rooms at US Bank to the proverbial corner office at an ad agency. Now, she’s gathered a team and made the leap to gamification. But her kids still don’t think she’s cool.
