This time I reached out to a very close group to me - the group that endorsed my book, "Join the Conversation" - namely: Jim Stengel, Mark Greatrex, Beth Comstock, Nick Brien, Roy Spence, Stan Rapp and Jim Garrity.
Both Stan and Jim have become (whether they know it or not), mentors to me and so I'm very much looking forward to reading their contributions over the next few weeks.
For those of you that don't know Stan and Jim, I've posted bio's (Stan's is on its way) in the extended post. In short, newly-retired Jim Garrity was Chief Marketing Officer of Wachovia whereas Stan is the same Rapp from Rapp-Collins and a founding father of Relationship Marketing (yes, the category).
I'll do my best to pop in from time to time, but in the interim I'll leave you in the hands of Stan and Jim....
