Ashley C. Ford is a maven you must know.
Pivot Marketing and Indy Maven invite you to grab a cocktail, pull up a chair, and see Ford dish on stage at The Cabaret about her path to internet fame, her journey as a storyteller, and everything else that makes this native Hoosier tick.
Big News IRL is an Indy Maven signature event that takes a person, topic, issue, or idea and takes it from something buzz-worthy on the internet to an audience “in real life.”
