Guest Speaker:
Linda Bonnin  – Vice President for Strategic Communications, The University of Alabama

Whether you are a diehard Bama fan, bleed orange and blue or some shade in between, you must have seen the award-winning “Where Legends Are Made” campaign Linda and her team have put together. Join us on Thursday, August 8 to hear how the concept began, the process they went through and to grasp the level of cooperation needed to get buy-in University-wide.

Linda serves as chief communications and marketing officer at The University of Alabama and has been a member of the president’s senior leadership team at Alabama since 2015. She has 23 years in higher education and 20 years in leadership positions and has served as vice president at three universities – The University of Alabama, LSU and the University of Memphis. 

She currently leads a team of 65 communications and marketing professionals in the areas of brand strategy, marketing, internal and external communications, media relations, broadcast production, web development, social media, design and production, photography and university ceremonies. Also serve on the board of directors of the American Advertising Federation in Tuscaloosa and the planning committee for the Tuscaloosa Bicentennial. Linda is the recipient of the 2019 Silver Medal Award from AAF Tuscaloosa for outstanding contributions to the advertising industry.

She is a transformative leader, experienced marketer and award-winning writer/editor/producer. Linda created the first integrated branding campaign in The University of Alabama’s history in 2016 – Where Legends Are Made.
