Zeno Group Giving Free Consultations at SXSW

From Sunday, March 11 at 6p.m. to Monday, March 12, Zeno Group will be giving free 45-minute consultations to start-ups and emerging tech companies at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin. The “consult-a-thon” is an event they’re calling “6to6 off Sixth.”

Zeno pros taking part are: Todd Irwin, MD of tech strategy; Tracey Thiele, EVP of digital engagement and brand strategy; Nick Mendoza, creative director; Scott Murphy, VP of digital engagement; Luke DeRouen, media strategist; and Leyla Arsan, a digital strategist with the firm.

“Sitting down for a 45-minute discussion solely focused on how they approach communications for their business today and in the future is a great place to begin,” Thiele told us via email when asked what the participating companies should expect from their consultation. “For some it may be an evaluation of a current approach, for others it may be providing them with a basic understanding of the considerations to make when launching a product or service.”

Services offered include social media 101, brand identity advice for those needing help with messaging and merchandising, and a creative workshop for brainstorming ideas.

To participate, companies should sign up via Eventbrite. Questions can also be tweeted to @ZenoGroup.
