Announcing …
Industry Legend Herschell Gordon Lewis
to Kick Off Bootcamp 2009

AWAI Conference Director Denise Ford confirmed today that Herschell Gordon Lewis will be kicking off Bootcamp this year.

Herschell is one of the most entertaining and instructive speakers you’ll ever see. His presentation topic: what makes sense in today’s market – including what to do about “shortened attention spans” and how that affects the copy you write.

Denise asked him if he’d be game for a “wide-open, no-holds-barred Q&A” after the presentation. Herschell, of course, responded with an emphatic “YES!” So, be sure to bring your questions for this industry legend.

Denise has also been talking to Herschell and Michael Masterson about doing an impromptu “happening” after the networking dinner that night … where they might give us the scoop on their recent collaboration on the film “Grim Fairy Tales.” More to come …

And more Bootcamp news … companies are already lining up to be part of this year’s Job Fair. We have 11 first-time companies registered, including Career Services International, Inktel Direct, T/R Financial Management Group, and Tycoon Research. They’ll be joining the 30+ “regulars” like The Motley Fool, Dr. Al Sears, International Living, and Early to Rise, who’ve already grabbed their booths and are looking forward to meeting you.

If you haven’t made your plans to come yet, why not reserve your spot now? I promise you … it will be a career-changer.

  1. This is my first time attending the bootcamp. The more I read about it, the more enthusiastic I am. Being a newbie in the field, I am also in awe and inspiration. All these talents and great people make me hope that one day I would be able to with them and work with them. That will definitely be the DAY for me.
