Get to know our panelists below and make sure to buy your tickets for Business Presents: Drink and Learn Stuff, presented by Bareknuckle. Brand Marketing. and hosted by Cathexes LLC. on Wednesday, May 30 from 5:30 p.m. to  7:00 p.m.

Brittany Silva- Marketing Manager at Ruby Seven Studios, Inc.
Hailing from the great white north of Canada,  Brittany’s seven years of experience in the marketing industry has taught her a thing or 12 about the ever-changing habits of consumers. Obviously, she knows a lot, or at least enough to sway the Reno-Tahoe American Marketing Association Chapter members to vote her in as President-Elect. After graduating from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2011, Brittany immediately entered the industry, working with brands big and small, marketing products and services both to other businesses and directly to consumers. Aside from managing marketing efforts at Ruby Seven Studios and presiding over the Reno-Tahoe chapter of the American Marketing Association, Brittany also attends grad school at UNR in pursuit of a Masters in Business Administration. Seriously, where does she find the time to even do an event like this?

Ryan O’Donnell- Creative Behavioral Scientist and Owner at RYANO LLC.
What do you get when you mix a knack for entrepreneurship, a Master’s Degree in Applied Behavioral Sciences, and a passion for bringing like minds together to incite change? You get Ryan O’Donnell, our brilliant panelist who will break down customer decision making using cold, hard science. Aside from running RYANO, LLC., a media and consultation service with a behavioral science twist, Ryan leads product development and distribution for High Sierra Industries as a Learning Systems Development Specialist. In all reality, Ryan never stops creating and working–he runs The Daily BA, a behavior analysis website and YouTube Channel, the Why We Do What We Do behavior analysis podcast, and BXplus, a behavior analysis think tank and online community.

Luke Jacobson- CEO of Moment Skis
If you’ve ever been to any of the Lake Tahoe area ski resorts, you’ve definitely seen Moment Skis in action–hell, you’ve probably seen Luke himself getting silly on the slopes. A graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Luke rose to the role of CEO with Moment Skis after nearly 10 years with the company as Vice President and Engineer. CEO doesn’t quite do Luke’s role justice–he oversees production, design, sales, marketing, website design, sponsorship deals, video production, and event management. Under Luke’s leadership, Moment Skis has risen to become one of America’s premiere ski brands, even taking on the Olympics with American Gold Medalist David Wise rockin’ a pair of Moment Skis.
