Aharoni spoke about his job as a marketer for Israel in a talk titled “Branding Israel: Nation Branding in a Global Environment,” in the Multipurpose Room of the Max Mutchnick Campus Center.
“At the end of the day, it’s not about advocating policy guidelines, it’s about building relationships,” Aharoni said of marketing that would encourage tourism and business with a particular country in the age of social media.
It was Aharoni’s second visit to Emerson since 2012. He was featured in the Spring 2013 edition of Expression, Emerson’s alumni magazine.
