Dean portrays the qualities recognized by the Lowell award. He has achieved much in his communications career, gaining the confidence of the senior-most executives of Hallmark and helping communications become a strategic business partner focused on enabling targeted goals. A life-long learner, Dean is committed to the professional development of his team. He currently serves on the Kansas City Zoo Board and has provided communications counsel to many civic organizations.
This special reception and fundraiser at the Kansas City Zoo will also feature a presentation from the Zoo’s Marketing Director, Kim Romary. Kim will share how visitor satisfaction data ultimately led to the zoo surpassing one million visitors in 2016. She will highlight:

•           Elements of a successful satisfaction survey
•           How to glean actionable insights from data
•           Key decisions made based on satisfaction information

Register today to recognize Dean and hear about the Zoo’s journey to become one of the top visitor attractions in the metro!
The Arthur E. Lowell Award is the highest honor given by KC/IABC. Named for the late Arthur E. Lowell, the first honorary lifetime member of the chapter, the award recognizes business communicators in the Kansas City area who have qualities of excellence, achievement and civic involvement.
