Our Mission

BRAND U Events is a talent accelerator with the mission of turning high-potential mid-level marketing executives into the next generation of thought-leaders.

Hosted by B. Bonin Bough, SVP, Chief Media & eCommerce Officer at Mondelez Intl, BRAND U Events works to bridge the talent gap that exists in Fortune 500 corporations and agencies today.

In today’s world, young professionals need to be as deliberate in building their career as they are in building the brands they manage.

Talent is currently the #1 game changer for corporate success. New studies continue to show that superior talent development & talent management is a core component of the success of industry leading companies.

Fortune 500 companies and media agencies that fail to invest in high potential talent will lose out on market share and innovation.
