Brad Jenkins is an expert at turning belly laughs into beltway advocacy and will kickoff the Campaigns and Marketing Summit on December 1 at the National Press Club.
As Funny Or Die’s Managing Director and Executive Producer in Washington, D.C., Jenkins manages creative campaigns and political strategy for non-profits, foundations and national brands. Before joining Funny Or Die last year, Jenkins spent four years serving as President Obama’s Associate Director in The White House Office of Public Engagement. From The White House, Jenkins brought together creative executives, thought leaders and some of the world’s biggest stars to advance the President’s agenda—culminating in the Emmy-award winning “Between Two Ferns” interview on the Affordable Care Act. In 2008, Jenkins served as the Deputy Director of Special Projects for President Obama’s election campaign, specializing in the intersection of youth media and grassroots engagement. Prior to joining the White House, Jenkins was the founding Vice President of Business Forward, an organization that brings entrepreneurs into the policymaking process.
The Campaigns and Marketing Summit is not only going to be educational it will be entertaining. “Its’ Where Everyone Is”, Rena Shapiro, BuzzFeed, a 2015 attendee.
