Great Job by Medill B2B class

Belated kudos my summer “Inside B2B Media” class at Medill. Fine job of tuning up an actual title, across platforms.

When a brand audit goes well

Worked with personnel from a magazine in a competitive space. Nice when staff prepares a forward-thinking worksheet and participates to embrace genuine change. Also nice when the COO says it’s fine to spend money to make money. Awaiting their reply.

Abe happy to have participated with 100 academic and lay students of those 1967 daze. Moderated two panels and participated in discussing the Media of the Summer of Love. Covered the double helix of the psychedelic Oracle and the street-news Communication Company.
