Bronze Beacons are awarded to professionals who have proven their communication programs effectively furthered the goals of their organization – boosting revenue, saving money, rallying employees or otherwise contributing to a successful outcome.

The event, held at the Benson hotel, featured Steve Gehlen, founder of the Portland Creative Conference talking lessons he’s learned over the years from top creatives.  Attendees had the opportunity to show their creativity by making their idea of “recess” using pipe cleaners and other toys from childhood.
