Why MSED? I'll tell you... 


Dear Friends,

This has been an exciting month for MSED!  Raising money for student scholarships and giving back to those pursuing a career in Sales & Marketing is one of the most rewarding benefits of membership.  And last week Saturday, I had the privilege (along with board member Mike DeVilling of Finn Partners) of sitting on a panel of judges at Oakland University during a Marketing Case Competition where the winning team was awarded a scholarship by MSED.

The night before the competition, judges were given copies of the case study and scoring matrix. Having read through the case and intense scoring process, I arrived that morning and asked how many weeks the students had to prepare for this case.  And, as it turns out, they were given 3 HOURS.  In three short hours, these four teams of students evaluated the strategy, finance and marketing plans that could grow the business, then presented their ideas to the judges.

I was impressed and inspired by these intelligent and well-spoken college students.  In the end, the winning team did a great job of working together and presenting a united message with thought-provoking ideas.  But honestly, I would consider hiring all of them for my own team. 

In short, I have met the millennials, and they are awesome!  Thank you to all who attend and sponsor our events.  All of you have contributed to our ability to provide scholarships to these impressive young professionals!

Please join us for two more great events to round out 2018.  Join us this Thursday to learn how “Value First” can improve your sales and your value add to customers and your employer.  Then join us again on December 6th for a fireside chat with Ramzi Hermiz of Shiloh Industries and some holiday cheer!


Our SUPERCHARGED Lineup continues through the summer and fall.  Stay tuned for updates and JOIN US!

November 8th - Value First Prof Dev - Join us for a professional development workshop on Value First, as presented by Todd Snelgrove.  A must for Sales & Mktg professionals!

December 6th - Fireside Chat - We will chat with Ramzi Hermiz of Shiloh Industries about what has taken him down a path of success and leadership. Don’t miss this insightful conversation and evening of holiday cheer!

Work-Life What??? 


Dear Friends,

Work-life balance. It turns out, that work-life balance is not just a myth. Paul Artale’s workshop this past Monday, based on his new book “The Two Year Old Guide’s to Work-Life Balance”, highlighted that having the life you want is really within your reach. I’ve already read through half of the book and can’t wait to start plotting some new ideas in the activities section. Having a daughter in middle school, my life is pretty evenly divided right now between being a Marketing Manager and being an Uber-Mom. Yeah…that’s not working so well for me. So it was great to get some insights into how to modify my daily schedule to include some “Me” time to help me keep my sanity! And THAT will be a benefit for everyone.

Our October line up is continuing THIS MONDAY with an AWESOME panel conversation on mobility. Join MSED, as we help kick off Mobility Week Detroit with a strolling dinner and insight from a panel of Detroit visionary transportation leaders as they address the rise of Mobility as a Service (MaaS).

Welcome Back to School!


Dear Friends,

Congratulations – you made it through another summer!  Whether you have a child or have ever been one, you know that back to school season is a great time for resetting, reframing and buying new books.  It’s my favorite time of year and I’m lucky to have a daughter that enjoys learning and buying school supplies as much as I still do. 

In honor of the back-to-school season and in the spirit of learning, MSED is excited to present a new Professional Development Reinvented workshop in a unique setting with breakfast, books and chocolates.  Oh my!  Not only will you learn some great techniques from Paul Artale for ensuring a sustainable work-life balance, but you will also get a brand new copy of his hot-off-the-presses book “The Two Year Old’s Guide to Work-Life Balance”. 

We’ll start the morning with breakfast from Chef Rebecca LaMalfa’s frame kitchen, then get into the meat of the program with Paul Artale’s Work-Life Balance Workshop.  Afterwards, enjoy meeting Paul for a book-signing and taste some great chocolates from Detroit’s own Guilt Chocolates.  They have incredible chocolates and an inspiring story!  Ask Joe to tell you about it while you’re sampling pure deliciousness.

Studies have shown that happy employees are productive employees!  I can’t think of a better way to start my week than with some motivation, a new book and chocolate.  Bring your team members and join us for this Professional Development Reinvented seminar that benefits you and your boss! 

Thank you to those that joined the Leader Dogs and Brunch event in August.  We had a doggone good time and learned some skills we can apply back at the office!

We have more great events coming up through fall and winter, so stay tuned and keep checking our website to register and for the latest information  www.msedetroit.org.

We are Blending!


Dear Friends,

Have you seen the movie “Blended” with Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler? It’s a romantic comedy where a twist of events has two families traveling together. One of the funniest scenes in the movie is when a resort entertainer tries to bring everyone together singing “We are blending!”, while total chaos ensues.

It may be a stretch, but I feel like this phrase captures my summer perfectly. Not in the sense of blending two families. But rather in the sense of blending my work and personal lives. Even as I write this letter, I’m sitting in the orthodontist office waiting for Brooke to have her braces tightened before jumping on another conference call. Between the back-to-school appointments, vacation days, work travel and the regular routine, it’s been a bit chaotic to say the least.

So instead of getting stressed, I’m embracing it. I’m often doing work at home, so why not bring some home into my work this summer??? On August 22nd, MSED is hosting a unique and exciting professional development and networking program at Leader Dogs for the Blind and the Rochester Brunch House. It will be a great discussion on leadership and how Leader Dogs can make us humans better leaders! Since I don’t think our youth are ever too young to learn leadership skills, and I know this “old dog” can always use some new tricks, we are offering a special price to bring a family member. Join me and Brooke, along with other MSED members, for this exciting dog day of summer!

And speaking of work/life balance, we’re securing an exciting new venue for our upcoming Work Life Balance seminar featuring Paul Artale. Registration opens soon and you won’t want to miss this great conversation and book signing! So stay tuned and keep checking our website for the latest information. www.msedetroit.org.

I hope you are having a great summer, and that I’ll see you soon at one of our upcoming events! Special thanks and shout out to The Henry Ford, where several of our members had a fantastic lunch and tour with Patricia Mooradian!

Swinging "Fore" Scholars! 


Dear Friends,

One of my favorite MSED events is the annual golf outing for scholarships.  It brings together so many friends, colleagues and customers for a great day of networking and relationship building.  And, it raises money for scholarships for students pursuing degrees in the Sales & Marketing profession.  It’s an all-around great combination! This year’s event was no exception.  It was great to see so many familiar faces and to meet some new people with a shared interest.  So, to all of you that donated, sponsored, golfed or just came out to help for the day, THANK YOU!!!  You make this possible.

As always, I would love to get your feedback on the event.  Our golf committee will continue meeting through the summer as we develop some new ideas and consider new venues for next year.  Have an idea?  A favorite course?  An exciting theme? Please share it!  If we pick your recommended venue, you could win a chance to play golf for free next year!  And really, what is better than a day out on the golf course?  A free day out on the golf course!

Our new fiscal year has emerged as of July 1st, and we are working hard to develop some great programs and ways to maximize your membership benefits.  Joining a committee or a task force is just one way to maximize your engagement, gain experience in new ways and expand your professional network.  We are currently seeking Task Force members for “The Millennial Mind” event where we will award scholarships for Skilled Trades and Sales/Marketing Students.  Please reach out to me directly if you have interest in participating in the Young Executives Panel or would like to help cultivate the event! 

I hope you are having a great summer, and that I’ll see you soon at one of our upcoming events!

Awesomely Terrifying!!!


Dear Friends,

Our adventures at MSED never cease to amaze me or push me outside of my comfort zone! Were you able to join us at the "Thrills for Skills" event on May 24th at the M1 Concourse? If so, you may have experienced the thrill ride of a lifetime. Literally. Despite my love for fast cars, I was a bit hesitant to hop into that Dodge Hellcat with a professional driver to speed around the track. It. Was. Awesome. Awesomely terrifying to be exact. But I loved every minute of it as the car squealed, raced, and took sharp turns around the track! We may have to start doing this annually.

Not only was the ride incredible, but the outpouring of support from all who participated in this event to raise money for Skilled Trades students was equally thrilling. From our Moderator, Murray Feldman to our Keynote Speaker, Brad Oleshansky and Panelists, Bill Kozyra (CEO of TI Automotive) and Mayor Deirdre Waterman (City of Pontiac). Great conversation with great people! I would also like to give a shout out to our sponsors that made this possible...


We also tried something new when it came to planning and executing this unique event. We rallied some of our talented members and created a Task Force. Task Force members were brave enough to accept their mission...to plan and execute a fun and exciting, successful event to raise money for scholarships. And the feedback was fantastic! Have you considered becoming more active in MSED? Are you able to consider a board position or committee seat? If yes, please reach out to one of our board members! If not, you can still be more engaged by joining an upcoming Task Force! This was put in place to maximize your member benefits while minimizing the time commitment. Learning from your peers while trying something new is truly a great way to engage! I'd love to hear your suggestions for future task force projects, events and venues. Drop me a line on Linked In and let's start a conversation!

What's Your "E"?


Dear Friends,

On Friday, April 13th, we held our annual MSED Board Strategy Meeting at the HELLA office in Plymouth.  We took over the entire training room…with coffee, white boards, presentation slides, lunch, brainstorming sessions, chocolates and ENERGY! Have you ever been to a meeting like that, where something magical happens, and EVERYONE is sharing ideas and focusing on the goal?  I know, it’s a rare thing these days considering the amount of time we all spend in meetings.  But I’m here to tell you, that at MSED we are a unique and passionate bunch, striving for EXCELLENCE of Sales and Marketing professionals across industries and across the career spectrum.

Ironically, you wouldn’t really know that from our name, would you?  Marketing and Sales Executives of Detroit.  It sounds exclusionary.  High level.  Limiting.  And when our organization was launched in 1989, there was a very different focus and intention, so it made sense.  We offered people opportunities to network and meet with those higher-level decision makers they may not have had a direct link to in the business world.  Yes, this was back before the days of social media channels like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, where we are all now BFF’s! 

And like many other companies and organizations, MSED is EVOLVING and updating our focus to meet the needs of our membership and to increase member ENGAGEMENT.  We really value building relationships through face to face interactions, whether it is through networking, professional development, rewarding achievements or giving back to the community. And in a world that is promoting self-driving vehicles and connected homes that let you turn off your crockpot from your cell phone three states away, we need to share ideas and synergize across the career spectrum, with our fellow professionals from internship through retirement.  And so, it is time for a branding ENHANCEMENT.

So, my question to you, EVER-VALUED MSED member, is what’s your “E”?  
Are you an EXECUTIVE?  An ENTREPRENEUR?  Are you ENTERPRISING? ENGAGING?  ESTABLISHED? EMERGING?
Let’s ENTWINE that “E” and make it fit who we are and what we do!
Share your ideas at one of our EXCITING upcoming EVENTS or drop me a line on LinkedIn and stay tuned for updates!

Were you Energized by the Evening of Excellence? Me too!


Dear Friends,

Last week, I had the privilege of attending my first Evening of Excellence awards ceremony at the Gem Theater on March 22nd. And I have to tell you, it was AWESOME! It was one of those events that makes me proud to share my passion for the Marketing and Sales profession, and the MSED organization. Really, how many fantastic, talented and inspiring people can you pull into one space? Our Evening of Excellence committee knows the answer to that question and they nailed it!

Working in a profession that centers around meeting new people and cultivating relationships means a never-ending journey....to self-improvement, camaraderie and shared experiences. I have pushed beyond my comfort zone and participated in programs and events that I would never have thought of on my own. So, I have to brag on my fellow members for a minute. The members of this organization are so inspiring to me. They manage their day jobs and families and extra-curricular activities and still take time to attend board meetings and MSED events. And when they are present, they are ON. I joined MSED for the networking, and I've stayed for the people. Every interaction energizes me to keep going and to think of new ways to do more... at home, at HELLA and at MSED.

What about you? What inspired you to join MSED and what are some of your favorite events or improvement ideas? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this and share them on our website. Consider it free advertising for your personal brand and company, a member-exclusive perk if you will. Drop me a line with what you love and what you'd like to see improve, and you may see yourself on our home page! My personal email is carolyn-321@hotmail.com. And I welcome your feedback. After all, you are one of the fantastic, talented and inspiring people that keeps me going!

December President Message

The Gift that Keeps on Giving!



Dear Friends,


As a child, my favorite holiday was always Christmas.  There was so much magic and excitement around visiting with cousins, making holiday ornaments and guessing what would be under the tree on Christmas morning.  And over the years, I have come to appreciate the holidays in a different way, as I now have responsibility for "creating the magic" for my own loved ones...doing the shopping, the cooking, the wrapping, the hiding, the jingling, the singing and the smiling.  Does anyone else get just a bit worn down at this time of year?

If so, then it is time to add in a new tradition.  No, not one more thing you have to do.  But one more thing that will keep you going and sustain you when you are running on caffeine and five hours of sleep.  The gift that keeps on giving, if you will. This year while you are in the midst of the hustle and bustle, pause.  Pause, and do something nice for yourself.  Whether it is having a cup of hot chocolate and admiring your holiday decorations or finally picking up that book you haven't had time to read this year, just pause, and take some time to reenergize.  

At MSED, one of our critical missions is to provide outstanding development, networking and recognition for Sales and Marketing professionals throughout the career spectrum...from your first internship through retirement and beyond.  This month I would encourage you to take some time out for you.  Practice the pause, and enjoy the gift that keeps on giving.  Two such opportunities are coming up next week - designed just for you!

I hope to see you at our Workshop for Sales & Marketing Rockstars, along with our "Mingle & Jingle" Holiday Networking Luncheon on December 15th! Personally, I can't think of a better way to recharge than surrounding myself with the energy that comes from being around and networking with our fellow MSED members!

Wishing you continued Success by Association,
