Happy New Year from

Our January 2022 Update includes a new Podcast with guests Dan Dunn and Cameron Hughes, an article on effective Crowdsourcing and a recap from our Plus Huddle Call on building Traditions with Zoltan Berencsi from the Harlem Globetrotters.

The podcast included a great conversation about creating promotions and elements that have an emotional connection to fans. As Cameron puts it "Can you FEEL it?". Cameron is back on January 12th for a Plus Huddle call to dive deeper into the topic.  If you'd like to join our call (Jan 12, 1pm EST) please reply and I can share a free pass to join the discussion on Zoom. Promises to be an interesting hour.
