The Power of the Napkin

11:45 AM

Mark your calendars for the July 18 meeting, where we will host Billy Ivey and hear “The Power of the Napkin.”

Billy Ivey has been an advertising professional for almost two decades. Today, he is a writer and brand strategist at Big Communications in Birmingham, Alabama.

He’s married to a beautiful woman with whom he has co-created five better than average-looking children — and before you ask, yes, he knows what causes that.

Each morning before his kids catch the school bus, Billy packs their lunches and places a hand-written note next to the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, bruised bananas, juice boxes, and Doritos (if they’re lucky). Big deal, right?

Well, about a year and a half ago, Billy began posting his lunch notes to Instagramand “Napkinisms” was born. Last summer, Napkinisms partnered with the Chick-fil-A Foundation in Atlanta to provide almost 3,000 lunches and notes to children in need, and the program is collecting even more messages this year! Now, hundreds of thousands of people have seen and shared “Napkinisms” throughout the world.

In his presentation entitled, “The Power of a Napkin,” Billy will share his thoughts on advertising, influence, storytelling, and doing small things to make a big difference in the lives of others.
