February 22, 2019

University of Florida students (Dr. Greg Dunn’s graduate Hospitality Management students, UF’s Ad Society, and select Event Marketing Student Association members) had the opportunity to connect with and learn from a number of professionals at Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Agency, including UF alums Matt Ryan (Sr. Account Manager) and Kelli Kaufmann (Account Manager). Here are insights from the experience, from a couple student participants:

The Yellow Shoes Tour was incredible! I am currently in the process of applying to positions within the Walt Disney Company, so having the chance to meet with Disney employees and learn more about their work was truly priceless to me. I am exceedingly grateful to Craig and TRSM for the opportunity to take big steps toward my career goals! (Sabrina O.)

Overall, it was a great experience and a good way to connect with people at Disney's Yellow Shoes. I thought the presentation as well as the work they do there is very unique and interesting. I loved getting to see the way they work at Disney's Yellow Shoes. As previously stated, I also really liked the videos they showed us. (Emma O.)
