November PD Luncheon Pele Cortizo-Burgess

Pele rocked the house. He schooled us on strategy.  He taught us that good strategy uses insight to reframe stories: a blind man cried, "I'm blind, please help" but what if instead he cried,  "it's springtime and I can't see"

Pele Cortizo-Burgess, the man behind the "Got Milk" campaign as well GE's recent, Ideas Are Scary and Enhance Your Lighting spots (watch below). 

How do you get the globe-trotting, high in demand, strategy guru Pele Cortizo-Burgess to come speak at your little shindig? Drawing him as his spirit animal doesn't hurt.

Pele was a crowd favorite for sure. The ballroom was roaring with laughter the entire hour. 

Thanks Pele! 

September-James Yang Rocked First Luncheon of Fiscal Year!

Illustrator James Yang brought down the house with his raw honesty and wealth of creativity. He reminded us that it's hard out there for creatives and creativity doesn't flow from the earth like cotton candy at the fair. 

"I do my best work when I'm scared"- Yang admits. 

He took us through his process and introduced us to his 'Yang Characters'. 

Most importantly, he inspired us. 

Cheers to you Mr. Yang!
