Media Spike # 49 – Who Are We Again?
Hale and well met, dear reader.

We’re in the home stretch. Have you enjoyed the ride?

The finish line is in sight. Including today’s effort, there are nine (9) Media Spikes remaining in this inaugural series. I hope you have found it informative, helpful, provocative (?), and entertaining.

Inquiries have come from different corners about my background, my client and agency history, and what campaigns have I worked on to somehow verify my authenticity.

I often expressed, With any luck, you’ve never heard of me. If you don’t know me, then I’ve done my job.  The media person isn’t supposed to take centre stage, the client is. My job is to get them on as many stages as possible so they can be seen by all the right prospects, while I’m in the shadows pulling the curtains. However the inquiries persist so to give more credence to everything you’ve read from me to date, here are many of the Ad Agencies I’ve worked with, and a litany of clients, where, I’ve been privileged to be the steward of their ad budgets.
