Jeffrey Miller

Jeffrey Alan Miller has over 20 years of experience in event marketing and experiential brand activation. Having worked with companies such as Mobil Oil, Microsoft, Dean’s Milk, Kraft and Morton Salt, he believes that brand activation strategies must be anchored by honest and relevant “personal experiences” by companies that want to remain viable in the new economy.

Jeffrey is the winner of two EX Awards (the world’s only recognition program for the experiential marketing industry) for his work with AT&T Wireless’ mMode™ re-launch and the Samsung/Cingular Warped Tour. He is a mentor for Founder’s Institute and Subject Matter Expert at Cintrifuse,
and has spoken at ProductCamp, Brandemonium, and AMA Cincinnati’s Inaugural IGNITE! Conference.

For a transplant to the Cincinnati region, Jeffrey has quickly established deep roots in various local causes. He most recently received a 2018 Project Grant on behalf of People’s Liberty to implement a unique culinary event, Epicure, to teach local chefs how to utilize rescued fruits and vegetables in their daily operations to address misperceptions about these ingredients – the end goal being a significant reduction in unwarranted landfill disposal.
