PRWeek 15th Anniversary

Today is a big day for our friends at PRWeek, and I am thrilled to be a part of the festivities.

The highly respected trade publication is celebrating its 15 year anniversary with a gala event tonight in New York.  I'll be there cheering them on with a table of my colleagues from the agency.  I've also been enjoying the 15th Year issue of their magazine over the holiday break ... chocked full of both great memories and predictions for the next 15.

At tonight's event, the magazine will also induct an inaugural bunch into its Hall of Fame.  Congratulations to all of the folks honored tonight, I'll be shouting out for you!

But first ... it's off to a secluded conference room where we will finalize the judging of this year's awards submissions from the magazine.  A group of judges from all aspects of the industry already made a first cut, and now we will pick all the winners and honorable mentions across a wide variety of categories.

It was great fun reading all the submissions, I have to say.  To see our industry at its greatest is just so rewarding.  I always say, "marketing is a spectator sport," so great creativity in action is nothing short of inspiring.

I am also inspired to say that PRWeek released its winners of the "Best Places to Work," and my agency Cohn & Wolfe made the very short list.  WooHoo ... I am so proud of all my colleagues around the world.  So exciting.

Quite a day for sure.  Congratulations to all my friends at PRWeek ... so happy for you!

What's your experience?  Jim.

  1. What a great event! The panel discussion with 4 of the Hall of Fame inductees was nothing short of amazing! Quote of the night came from Harold Burson ... "you learn more when you listen than when you talk." Truer words were never spoken! Jim.
