Atlanta-based marketing communications agency to support Dinner of Influence, Corporate Site Visit

Atlanta, GA – The Winning Edge Leadership Academy announced today that Jackson Spalding is the latest supporter of the 2019 Game Changing Retreat in Atlanta. As a presenting partner for the Dinner of Influence, Jackson Spalding will bring industry professionals together for a nontraditional networking event designed to encourage intentional conversation with current and former student athletes. They also will offer an immersive learning opportunity for interested cohort members during a corporate site visit to their offices in midtown Atlanta, joining the Atlanta Braves in offering such an experience. 

“Creating a unique learning environment for cohort members is at the core of The Game Changing Retreat.  Working with Jackson Spalding, an industry gamechanger, creates multiple opportunities for genuine connections, the foundation to educating the next generation of leaders in sports business,” said Executive Director Corinne Milien.

In addition to their commitment as a corporate site visit partner and a Dinner of Influence, Bryan Harris, the lead of Jackson Spalding’s sports practice, will sit on the Emerging Career Panel hosted by co-founder Maria Taylor and streamed live on Twitter Friday, June 21.
“As a fellow graduate of the Grady College at UGA, I have known and admired Maria for years. When she and Corinne told me about the vision of The Winning Edge Leadership Academy, I knew immediately that it was something Jackson Spalding had to be a part of,” Harris said. “We have more than 10 former college athletes working at our agency and believe that it is important to help these special individuals translate the skills that made them a success on the court or field into the next phase of their lives.”  

Jackson Spalding was founded in 1995 with a team of eight people who felt there was a better way to structure a communications firm, advance clients and serve the community. The firm opened its doors as a public relations agency but has evolved during the past 20 years to encompass integrated marketing communications. JS is now one of the largest independent marketing communications agencies in the Southeast, with more than 125 full-time team members in Atlanta, Athens, Ga, and Dallas, Tx. Their sports projects include work for the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Sports Council, ESPN, Major League Soccer and many others. Jackson Spalding has been named "One of the 10 Best Sports Agencies in America" by topPRagencies.com & O'Dwyer's.
