As I've said to many start ups, one of the more important things you can do to build up the knowledge pool around you is to get yourself a super smart advisory board.
Jeremy Wright, our rocking right along CEO, of b5 media has pulled together an amazing board of advisors that I'm delighted to be telling you about.
Stowe is an amazing guy who 'gets it' when it comes to social media and all of this Web 2.0 stuff. A great blogger, visionary, and terrific guy; Stowe brings all of this insight and knowledge to the b5 team.
As the founder, cook, and chief bottle washer of Blodgett communications, Renee has forgotten what lots of people know in totality about communications, PR and the convergence of technology into all of it. I've spoken to many of her clients and the consistent message is always stated: Professional, brilliant and a delight to work with. We are honored to get a small slice of time for b5.
Hugh is a world class cartoonist and the perfect out of the box, curmudgeon that forces people to think and act differently as all this blogging social stuff continues to evolve. As a good friend, I'm especially pleased that we will get to share notes on b5 together.
Doc and I have known each other for over 12 years. Anytime I have some brilliant idea, pretty much Doc was involved and when I screw something up, its because I didn't call the guy. Doc, in addition to being on the board of PlanetEye, Doc has signed on to assist the b5 crew as they continue to grow.
Two words describe my friend Robert: Passion and Intensity. Taping into those veins are really like striking gold. Robert gets the core, is smart and always kicks it up a notch. Robert is a super person and will add much to the b5 team.
All of the folks mentioned here are, in a word, amazing. All of us on the board and the team are delighted to have our advisory board in place and ready to rock!
Welcome aboard, folks, fasten your seat belts.
