CMD may be over 50, but the logo is crisp and new! CMD has an updated look, and a refreshed logo! Ann Buckendahl, our new Director, had the perfect experience in brand management to lead us through the refreshing journey and come out with a look that is spot on!
The black and gold is proudly displayed as we continue to brag on our Wichita State University affiliation, and our tie to the W. Frank Barton School of Business.
The look may be refreshed, however the value you receive from CMD is as strong and robust as ever. Earlier this year, LinkedIn released its annual Global Talent Trends of 2019 report, which explores the four big trends fueling the future of the workplace. Top of the list? Soft skills.
CMD is the premier provider of professional development in the Midwest. Roughly 5,000 participants trust in CMD each year to develop and grow their careers. Whether it be a professional development plan from their employer, or a personal journey they embark on for career growth, CMD has the right mix of subject matter expertise, current curriculum, and participative exercises that makes the time spent in the classroom the best value money can buy. How do we know that? Our customers tell us that every day!
“The instruction provided and the time made available to practice what was taught made going back to work the next day exciting! I was able to see why tasks I have previously tried to delegate were unsuccessful and given tools to help with future delegating. Dr. Hackett kept the class engaged and made everything very interactive. I enjoyed his teaching style! I appreciate the culture of learning that CMD provides. The opportunity to learn from the excellent instructors, and also from my peers, is something I greatly enjoy. Networking with others in my class is a wonderful way to put my experiences into perspective. I often realize our challenges are more universal than we think.” Christina Dew, Treasury Services Supervisor, INTRUST Bank, Wichita, Kansas
Just like a kid with new shoes, we want everyone to see the new look. Did you notice our July brochure was complete with the refreshed logo, along with a new layout and design? If you don’t get our monthly brochures, we can get you on our mailing list. CMD@wichita.edu
Our staff has begun putting the new branding on all that is CMD, so that our public identity will be slowly adjusting over the next couple of months.
