This week, we’re sitting down with Brynn Lampert, associate director of marketing in the Office of Executive Education:
What is your role at Georgetown? How long have you been working here?
As associate director of marketing, I lead the marketing strategy and outreach for custom executive education programs at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business. I also manage the Office of Executive Education’s social media accounts, digital newsletter, and blog. I have worked at Georgetown McDonough since July 2014, and have been in this position for one year.
What do you enjoy most about working in executive education?
Georgetown University’s Jesuit heritage resonates with me – there’s a focus on caring for the whole person and on serving others. We truly care about building each other up as people, not just as university employees. For example, Georgetown McDonough and the John Main Center recently started offering group meditation in the Hariri Building every Thursday. It is incredible to see students, faculty, and staff – from different backgrounds and traditions – come together for 30 minutes out of their day.
I also appreciate how collaborative and passionate everyone is at Georgetown McDonough and in the Office of Executive Education. The culture is rooted in a willingness to experiment and innovate. As a marketer, it is exciting to be part of a team that values creativity and high standards.
We noticed you got the chance to travel a bit this summer – tell us about your experience!
I traveled to France for a conference in July and was fortune to have a few personal days afterwards to explore. I made time to stop by the Musée de l’Orangerie before leaving Paris – the museum has an impressive permanent collection of Claude Monet’s Water Lilies. It was incredible to visit Giverny a couple of days later to see firsthand the inspiration for those paintings. I could feel how the solitude and beauty of the gardens translated to Monet’s works of art.
Which TV shows are you enjoying most at the moment?
I’ll admit, I’m a devoted fan of the NBC show, “This is Us.” I’m also eagerly awaiting the second season of “Stranger Things” on Netflix.
