The Wall Street Journal is one of our favorite new clients, and they have invited us to capture some pretty fantastic events in the past few weeks. The first event – hosted by WSJ nationally – was titled, “How I Built It” – a panel discussion of some very well known industry leaders hosted by WSJ at the St. Regis Buckhead. It was all kinds of informative, inspiring, and at times, humorous!
Hearing Sarah Blakely discuss how she financed her business through the bank of “Nana” (her grandmother) and listening to Jeff Orly describe the original idea behind the invention of the French manicure were certainly a couple of highlights! The room was filled with entrepreneurs and a ‘who’s who’ in Atlanta business – and they were listening intently to what the speakers had to say about achieving success in terms of business, finance, branding, hard work, and occasionally – a little bit of luck.
The event ended with a presentation on e-mail marketing from the president of Constant Contact.
You have to love the St. Regis for their attitude about service and going the extra mile. One of the ladies with Wall Street Journal mentioned she had always been fascinated watching people saber bottles of champagne. No sooner had it come out of her mouth than the fine folks at the Regis offered to show her how to saber a bottle herself! We watched. We learned. Next time you’re at a party with me – ask, and I will show you my favorite new party trick!!
A few days later we were at the AMC Fork & Screen for a sneak preview of the movie, Wall Street -Money Never Sleeps (the Michael Douglas hit sequel) hosted by the Atlanta WSJ office. It was also a well attended fun event!
Also, we have been adding lots and lots of pictures to our Facebook fan page. Check out Facebook and search for PWP Studio – give us a “like” and we will keep you stocked up on good fun event images from all over the country! We will be headed down to Jacksonville next week to capture the annual UTA convention, and then the busy crazy Holiday season starts!!
One last thing: our little goblin has been working hard prepping pumpkins, costumes, and fun photo ops for the upcoming season – be on the lookout!!
Thanks for visiting!
