On Being Set up for Failure: Adventures in the Absurd

Posted by Larry Kenigsberg on Aug 3, 2020 4:45:00 AM

Nothing blows people’s minds more than turning down their business, especially in Israel’s business culture. As business people with a strong, American background, we seek to work in a win-win paradigm. Sometimes a request/demand/deadline/approach just won't work or is unreasonable. People are often incredulous when we decline to accept in an ill-conceived request, even when our decision is accompanied by a detailed explanation.

The tension in the room was palpable. The CEO was clearly an unwilling hostage to the situation; that seemed clear. Amy and I were invited to this meeting by T, the vice president of marketing.

Prepping for the Big Trade Show

Posted by Judith Segaloff on Jan 28, 2019 10:31:00 AM

Once upon a time, I covered trade shows as a market analyst for a major consumer publication.  Shortly thereafter I flipped to the other side of the desk and ended up with a press conference on one side of the Consumer Electronics Show and a photo shoot clear across the exhibition hall.  Let’s just say that roller skates were very much on my mind by the time I finished my Mrs. Doubtfire dash back and forth across the crowded exhibit halls.

That is why when I have a client exhibiting, I try to be a resource to media covering the show by helping them identify my clients’ product introductions long before the show, setting up interviews or, better still, pre-show interviews to save journalist’s precious time, jet-lagged exhaustion, and, especially, their shoe leather.
