Meet Mari!

Meet Mari!

My name is Mariana, or Mari for short, and I couldn’t be more excited to be one of three of the new Social Media Interns at Imagine Media! I was born in Brazil, but raised in ATL. I’m a city gal at heart, and though I live an hour away from Atlanta, I always try to make it out to ATL to explore the many diverse boroughs in the city and venture into the coffee shops that I still haven’t discovered.

Double Tap the Keg: Cultivating Culture

Double Tap the Keg: Cultivating Culture

Earlier this month the Imagine Media team hosted our eighth Double Tap the Keg event. We invited five panelists to the stage to discuss a trending topic: Company Culture. Our panelists came from a variety of backgrounds and shared a great deal of insight on how to attract and retain employees as well as foster or evolve a company’s culture. The panel included Billy Boughey, Jackie Velez, Nikki Strickland, Ryan Tuttle, and Josh Sweeny. All participants contributed to a great conversation around culture and left the audience feeling inspired. ICYMI, we’ve rounded up some key culture-takeaways from the evening.

Imagine Media Core Values

Imagine Media Core Values

Most professionals might be familiar with core values as a list of abstract words that get posted on the wall in your office, introduced to you during your orientation and then never heard of again. At Imagine Media we approach our core values with sincerity and they are part of our daily conversations, celebrations and goals. This is why it was huge news last week when our leadership team announced that we were going to make some changes to our core values. The updates included shortening the descriptions of each core value in order to make them more memorable and changing our I-word from “Innovative” to “Integrity.” Given that we live and breathe these core values, it was very important to our leadership team to know that these were still values that resonated with us as a whole. The team was excited about these small, but mighty changes to our guiding truths. So how do we put these values into practice? Check out this list of ways that the Imagine Media team incorporates core values into our everyday processes and long term goals.

Hannah attends school in Virginia and couldn't wait to come back to the warmer weather this summer. When she discovered Imagine Media, she knew it was the perfect fit! Hannah values hard work, organization, and creativity. She loves to get the job done and challenge herself! This summer she is excited to learn and collaborate with the team and other ambassadors.
