Alumni-in-Residence: Using Interdisciplinarity to Build a Creative Career, with Chip Garner '89

Interested in learning how your liberal arts education can translate to a creative career?

Chip Garner ’89 credits his Amherst education with providing the best possible foundation for a career in communications. His varied interests have taken him from broadcast news, to films and infomercials, to ad agencies -- and to his current role in public relations as Senior Vice President at MWWPR.

Chip Garner ’89 is Senior Vice President at MWWPR, creating and implementing integrated communications strategies for a variety of corporate and crisis clients.

Prior to BA, he was Senior Vice President of Social at the world-renowned advertising agency Ogilvy, working extensively in influencer management, crisis and nuisance governance, executive positioning and training, and content development, as well as providing strategic direction for global clients.

Strategies for Staying Sane Through Stress and Uncertainty

We humans are better at bouncing back from bad news than we are at adapting to uncertainty. Continuous change and uncertainty cause a great deal of stress because we don’t have anything stable to adapt and adjust to. In times of upheaval, it is more important than ever to attend to our own wellbeing and the health of our communities. This workshop will help participants differentiate between stressors (causes of stress), and the physiological stress response, and will offer concrete strategies for addressing the stress caused by uncertainty.
