Hall Speaks on Marketing Careers
Alumnus and marketing veteran John Hall ’70 spoke to about 40 Washington College students on Monday, November 5 in the Egg. In an informal talk, Hall recalled his days studying—and playing lacrosse—at Washington College in the late 1960s, and talked about his wide-ranging career in marketing and advertising, from working for Ogilvy and Mather, to Time-Life Music, to his own consulting career.
Drawing on his experience with managing many collaborative marketing projects, Hall offered three key lessons for effective leadership: “First , you’ve got to set the strategy. Second, you’ve got to get the right people and the right resources in place. And third, you’ve got to let them run.”
