As a digital marketing agency focused on providing services for the senior living industry, Markentum looks for new opportunities to share resources related to the field of aging. Despite COVID, one of those opportunities grew from an idea into reality this past year.
Through my involvement with the LeadingAge Tennessee team (Go, Gwyn Earl!), I was connected with Christy Kramer, VP of Student Engagement and Workforce Partnerships at LeadingAge. After a lot of brainstorming sessions, and becoming pandemic induced Zoom experts, an exciting idea took shape. We are thrilled to share that we are the proud podcast parents of The Mentor's Voice.
Markentum in partnership with LeadingAge launched The Mentor's Voice in November 2020 at the LeadingAge Annual Conference.
What Makes The Mentor's Voice Special?
It is our mission to create a podcast that provides students and young professionals in the field of aging with the opportunity to interview and learn from leaders or mentors. By giving students direct access to ask mentors questions about their experience and journey, we believe that hearing the voice of mentors and leaders will bring knowledge, inspiration, and guidance for the future. Through these candid conversations, we all have access to fresh insights into the past, present, and future!
On a personal level, as president of Markentum, I am thankful that we are able to support another venture that works to connect the generations. With so many negative stigmas and views regarding the different generations, it has become a personal passion to find ways to grow and strengthen the relational dynamics between generations.
At Markentum, we are fortunate to have several different generations working together on our team. Through our work for The Mentor's Voice, we continue that mission to help grow the bond between generations.
