Social Comes to Health

by /

The Edelman Health Barometer 2011, released last week in Europe, indicates a profound impact of friends and family on personal health, now comparable in importance to health care providers. This dispersion of authority is a consistent theme in the 12 country, 15,000 person survey. In fact, after themselves, nearly half (43%) of respondents believe their […]

I had an opportunity to interview Doug Conant, former CEO of Campbell Soup Company, at the Sixth Annual Edelman Change Summit yesterday in Edelman’s New York office.

24 Hours in NYC

by /

New York City in mid-September is a swirl of events superimposed upon a city already straining its infrastructure in normal times.

Visualizing Information

by /

PR pros have always used compelling visuals to help journalists convey information, and the media have used info graphics for decades, going back to USA Today in 1981. With the advent of direct-to-end-user communication and the propensity of people online to link to compelling content (especially visual content), we need to make greater use of […]

Rush to Judgment

I attended the 9-11 Memorial Foundation Dinner last night in Lower Manhattan. The 10th anniversary event was packed with politicians, businesspeople and community activists. Companies such as Cantor Fitzgerald, Keefe Bruyette and Fred Alger, that lost employees in the terror attack, have donated to the Memorial which opens on Sunday. I spent a few minutes […]

GWEN

by /

I went to a small community theater last night in New York City to see Shakespeare’s Cymbeline. The king, Cymbeline, is infuriated by his daughter, Imogen, who marries an impoverished but ingenious orphan instead of the oafish prince. The king and his daughter are eventually reconciled after the usual cross-dressing and feigned death by potion […]

Howard Paster: Hail and Farewell

I needed the time to relax, read, play tennis, and ride my bike, to say nothing of my fearless efforts to body-surf. While on vacation, I read Howard Paster’s obituary in The New York Times.
