New York New York is a helluva of town. While Day 2 goings on are being written up, let’s hear from the one and only RAY ECKE, PR guru extraordinaire, who had a super Tuesday at PROMAX NYC.

Day one of PromaxBDA always reminds me of the first day of college: people shuffling in with luggage and laptops, long lines to register, reconnected with friends they haven’t seen in months, and of course some looking confused and overwhelmed. The only ones missing are tearful parents waving goodbyes…


Kicking off the PromaxBDA 2016 was the well attended Leader Institute session “May-December (and January-July) Relationships: Finding Common Ground Through Intergenerational Dynamics, hosted by office culture expert Jocelyn Greenky, which focused best practices for working in an office with Baby Boomers, Gen X’ers, Gen Z’ers and Millennials. After the session I chatted with Alberto Scirocco, Creative Director of the Columbus, OH-based design/animation studio Leftchannel and his new Executive Producer Andrew Kobliska; spotted Greenky lunching with Andy Goldman, Chief Strategy Officer, TVTibi and Carolyn Bernstein, Head of sales and Marketing at zap2it (a Tribune Media company)…

From there is was off to find our inner nerd at Keynote: Nerds Rising with filmmaker/podcaster Kevin Smith and Andy Signore of Screen Junkies followed by a surpassingly salient conversation about politics and political coverage political consultant James Caraville, radio host Hugh Hewitt, veteran news producer Rick Kaplan, hosted by Katie Couric.

 In between I had a chance to check out the latest guitars being given away by the folks at Stephen Arnold Music. Hanging around the veteran sonic branding experts guitar display was the company’s sales mavericks Noelle Alanis and Tinley Bone as well as Stephen himself, looking very much like he’d love to play the four guitars they’re giving away, which are beautiful recreations of classic guitars used by The Beatles, including a Hofner violin bass guitar.

Day one ended with a conversation with Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient John Miller, CMO of NBC Olympics — a class act and someone largely responsible for PromaxBDA becoming they must-attend event for everyone in the creative arts industry, followed by an excellent bash at South Street Seaport.

Day 2 looks  was equally promising…Lets hope everyone find their classrooms easily.

Wonderful PR man DAN HARARY pointed out my spelling is not all that great, so for those who understand the beauty of a well-spelled name, let’s try this one again….LEILA AMIRSADEGHI of Eclipse.

Wednesday in NYC for PROMAX? If the answer is yes… then you must, have to, no excuses accepted – get yourself to hear ALBERTO SCIROCCO’s 2:30 Promo BootCamp session (in Gramercy) called Internet Killed the Promo Star: Goose Your Game by Weaning off the Web. Hosted by VALERIE ALBANESE, SVP Brand Creative Lifetime Television, Alberto will talk about fresh inspiration and how to cultivate creative (and it isn’t watching other people’s promos on the net).  Alberto is the Creative Director of leftchannel, a motion graphics and design studio as well as a brand new Well Dunne! Talent member. He knows about artistis inspiration – he hails from Milan (Italy not Michigan) and his history in art dates back to 1586. Most impressive. So go…do it. Enjoy. And Well Dunne! Alberto!

Austin Texas is one of the coolest places to live (truth – traffic was omitted from the assessment). So it great news to hear that LA-based El Rey Network, which is a cable net founded by film guy Robert Rodriguez is moving their production and executive headquarters there. Of course, being a UT Longhorn and being married to an Ausin lady probably helped in the decision. Well Dunne! Austin and El Rey.

Look for HARRY LEGG and his hairy leg business card at PROMAX. Win a serious Bacon prize from Dean and DeLuca. Meet Harry. That is all.

ALBERTO SCIROCCO is not just President but also Creative Director of motion design studio leftchannel. How cool is their work? So cool they did the intro to the recently completed motion creative gathering held at the KiMo theatre on Route 66 in Albuquerque. All in all it’s a very good thing. Take a gander and then join me in saying Well Dunne!
