Show of hands

A few questions, because I’m curious…

Have you ever applied for or been offered a job because of something you saw posted on this site?

Have you ever had potential candidates reach out to you because your site is listed here?

Have you ever had clients find you because your agency is listed in the directory?

Have you ever won business because of something you saw on this site?

I’d really like to know.

Our friends over at the Boise Weekly went all Paul Harvey on us and got the rest of the story on Woodland Empire Ale Craft and their dust-up with the Idaho Transportation Department over their craft brew sign:

On Quality

This was one of those random thoughts that struck a while ago, and just won’t go away…

What percentage of the work that you do is billable quality versus portfolio quality? And what would it take to move the work that you do closer to the latter on a daily basis?

Who would you like to hear speak at BAF events this coming year?

Now’s the time to speak up and be heard.

No, I have no control over who the Boise Advertising Federation invites to speak at any events, but if you’ve got an opinion, now’s the time to chime in and give them some feedback.

So, who would you like to hear speak at luncheons or other events this year?

Me? I’ve got a list that includes:

John January and Tug McTighe of American Copywriter.

Sally Hogshead, Consultant, Creative Director, Author of Fascinate and Radical Careering

Luke Sullivan, Copywriter, Creative Director, Author of Hey Whipple, Squeeze This

Helen Klein Ross, Founder of Brand Fiction Factory, Voice of @BettyDraper

Robbie Vitrano, CEO and Founder of Trumpet

Iain Tait, Global Interactive Creative Director at Wieden + Kennedy

Britton Taylor, Planner and Strategist at Wieden + Kennedy

This list could go on and on.  But my question to you, dear reader, is this: Who would you like to see and hear from at an event?

Time to Chime In

Okay folks, it’s your turn to chime in…

What have you seen lately that you liked?  That interested you?  That amused you?

What has left you scratching your head wondering why they did that? Or how?

What do you want to learn more about?

What can you do to push yourself farther?

What’s next for you?

Feel free to leave answers to any of these questions in the comments.  Let’s see where this goes.
