Birmingham Kitchen Table Relaunches With New Look and Feel
Birmingham, AL. (August 13, 2015) – The Birmingham Kitchen Table organization will celebrate its relaunch today through social media outlets and its interactive website. The rebrand takes place seven years after its original launch in 2008. By incorporating an all-new look and feel and implementing new goals and ideas, BKT plans to grow its diverse audience and revitalize the initial concept of bringing
Since the beginning, BKT has fostered relationships in Birmingham through discussions sponsored by Samford University and o2ideas. During these events, participants are able to engage with others in small groups by sharing their thoughts on different subjects such as education, social media and human rights. To date, the events have been successful, bringing in more than 200 past participants, but BKT plans to expand its reach even more with the refreshed look and strengthened recruitment efforts.
“I’m grateful for a deep and abiding friendship with Shelley Stewart,” said Samford’s president, Dr. Andrew Westmoreland. “And through the Birmingham Kitchen Table, Shelley and I invite people from all walks of life to join us and make connections. When families gather around their kitchen tables they talk, they laugh, and sometimes the conversation becomes spirited, but they work through their problems because they are family.”
The rebrand comes with a change in event location and updated look. The event will be held in Samford University’s all-new Brock School of Business. Attendees will be able to not only experience the new environment, but also enjoy the new look and feel of the brand. The refreshed look retains the original speech bubble concept, but with a modern execution to attract more millennial participants.
The next event will take place on Tuesday, August 25, and kicks off the rebrand with the new discussion topic related to society’s perception of beauty. The event starts at 6 p.m., is open to individuals 14 years of age and older and includes dinner. Guests can RSVP online at birminghamkitchentable.com by August 20 to reserve a spot.
