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.

Predictions and Trends

Its that time of year again.

The time when everyone and their dog, cat and goldfish makes their predictions about what the biggest trends will be in the coming year.  And, like every year, its a shot in the dark.  Sometimes those predictions are right, sometimes they’re horribly wrong.

That being said, this year I say we crowdsource the whole prediction thing.  I’d like to know what you, dear readers, think will be the big trends in 2010, and any predictions you’d like to make.

Comment away.
