    The course will cover the latest in direct-to-consumer trends and teach how to elevate your business with advanced e-commerce strategies, as well as techniques to keep your digital strategy aligned with your brick-and-mortar team. It will also offer tips for calculating your digital marketing spend.

  • On Thursday, May 16, Emilee Mae Struss and Dayne Ellis Johnson will present a workshop titled “No One Cares: Helping Creatives & Brands Tell Better Stories” from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

They hope to share how to provide compelling storytelling in an oversaturated culture of meaningless content.

Johnson is a professional photographer and film producer, who has worked on such TV dramas as “Lost.” Armed with a degree in visual communications from Hawaii Pacific University, he has been managing editor for various magazines.
