MB Piland celebrated 15 years in business on April 1, 2013. We filled a basket with Billy Vanilly cupcakes and lots of fun, pink party games, then took the festivities on the road to our friends and clients.
Alex Reilly won a Bronze Quill from the Topeka Chapter of International Association of Business Communicators at their awards ceremony this week. Her work on the "Future Topeka" brochure was honored by judges for effective creative writing.
