“Making Waves” Receives 2019 IMPACT Award

Los Angeles, CA, Nov. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Pepperdine Graziadio Business School announced a new video series, showcasing how Pepperdine Graziadio alumni and students are making a positive impact on their communities, industries, and the world.

The series, which received the 2019 IMPACT Award for the Best Use of Video – Theme/Creativity at the 2019 impactSHOW conference, can be viewed here. The annual IMPACT Awards given by the Internet Marketing Association, exemplify best-in-class creativity, expertise and results achieved by the top practitioners of Internet marketing across every business segment.

In the first videos in the series Making Waves: A Graziadio Original Series, alumni and students reflect on their personal and professional journeys. Each video describes how their graduate school experience influenced their individual purpose, business acumen, and leadership skills to support their career growth and success.

In one video president and chief operating officer at Lawry’s Restaurants Tiffany Stith, the first non-family member and first woman to hold that role, observes, “What I learned at Graziadio helped me speak the language of business to open some of those doors, whether that was dealing with the board of directors or really articulating a strategy for the organization.” In another video, head of Village Christian School Tom Konjoyan reflects, “When I think about my purpose, I always go back to the idea that, ‘To whom much has been given, much is expected’…(Y)ou get one chance to really impact this world, so I need to take everything that I can do to really make a difference and really make it better.”

“The video series demonstrates how the Graziadio community breaks the traditional business mold and how our individuals create waves that influence positive change,” said Hillary Doran, associate director of marketing, who envisioned and produced the series. According to Doran, additional videos will be added to the site over the next year and will include more members of the Graziadio community, such as faculty.
