With the AMA Houston Mentorship Program deadline fast approaching (October 9), we know you’ll enjoy real-life insight from past mentees and mentors on what it’s like to be in the program. Today, Mariam Ottun, AMA Houston volunteer and a 2016-2017 mentee, shares her experience from last year’s program:

What made you apply to become a mentee?

I applied for the program because I felt I needed a little bit of hand holding when it came to my career in marketing. I was excited for the opportunity to meet someone who was where I would like to be and help me map out how I could get there. I applied to the program twice. The first time was during my last year in undergrad, but I didn’t get in at that time. After I graduated and landed my first job I decided to apply again, and this time my application was accepted.

Deadline to submit your entry is Friday, September 29, at 11:59 p.m.

If you haven’t completed your entry for Marketer of the Year (MOTY), AMA Houston can help you move forward with these easy steps to submitting your (possibly award-winning) campaign. We don’t work alone, and we don’t expect you to either. No one understands the benefits of teamwork better than we do, except maybe the past winners of MOTY.

Use these steps to guide you as you become that much closer to being announced Marketer of the Year. And visit the AMA Houston Blog and amamoty.org for more resources to help you with your submission.

The 2017 Crystal Awards may be behind us, but AMA Houston professionals have the Marketer of the Year Award (MOTY) to look forward to. The award recognizes marketing teams for doing what they do best: branding a company, researching a new audience, and growing a successful business. Read more about MOTY and how it differs from Crystals here.

Three-time winner, Fredrica Cudjoe, director of B2B communications at Phillips 66 Company, knows exactly what it takes to win. With eight Crystal Awards also in her team’s trophy cabinet, Cudjoe spoke with AMA Houston about what it takes to succeed in marketing communications, and what it takes to win a MOTY.

Most great ideas start with a simple conversation. AMA Houston strives to bring these ideas forward through constant community and collaboration with our members. This month, Ben Cohen, AMA Houston member and VP at Denneen & Company, shares his conversation with David Oksman, Head of Global Strategic Communications and U.S. Activation at Reebok. Here, Oksman shares his ideas on everything from gaining consumer insights, to his goals for improving marketing metrics and what good marketing looks like.
