Billy Ivey has been an advertising professional for almost two decades. Today, he is a writer and brand strategist working with clients all over the nation from his home in Birmingham, Alabama.
He’s married to a beautiful woman with whom he has co-created five better than average-looking children — and before you ask, yes, he knows what causes that.
Anyway, each morning before his kids catch the school bus, Billy packs their lunches and places a hand-written note next to the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, bruised bananas, juice boxes, and Doritos (if they’re lucky). Big deal, right?
Well, a couple of years ago, Billy began posting his lunch notes to Instagram, and “Napkinisms” was born. In the summer of 2016, Napkinisms partnered with the Chick-fil-A Foundation to provide more than 3,000 lunches and notes to children in need — and now hundreds of thousands of people have seen and shared “Napkinisms” throughout the world.
Billy will share his thoughts on advertising, influence, storytelling, and doing small things to make a big difference in the lives of others.
