"Honey, I'm 64, grandmother of four, but I'm not dead yet," said one Palais Royal customer in response to being asked if she shopped for herself. Stage Store Inc. CMO, Bill Gentner, the company that owns Palais Royal, shared this insight with AMA Houston members at the October Luncheon. This was one of the insights Gentner also introduced to Stage when he was brought in to address their falling market share. After digging into their research, he learned he needed to challenge internal perceptions of their top customer and how to reach their true following.

Of all the daunting social issues for a young non-profit to tackle, educational access is as tough as they come. Students want to go to college, but the cost of higher education makes it difficult for many to complete a degree.

The extended deadline for the 2017-2018 AMA Houston Mentorship Program is October 9, so there’s no time to doubt whether you have what it takes to mentor some of Houston’s brightest young marketers. If you aren’t sure you have what it takes to lead, read one mentor’s thought process and how his concerns contributed to his achievements. You don’t need to be a traditional marketer to give someone the boost they need. Your journey as a mentor could change a life, and end up changing you as well.
