Heinz, Fox and the AMA Pittsburgh

Friday, May 9th, 2008 | Posted by David

Heinz Top This ChallengeI had a very odd synchronicity over the past two weeks:  I was called on a couple of days notice to appear on Fox Business News’  Money for Breakfast show hosted by the very charming Alexis Glick.   The appearance was for their Brand X segment (see it here)  to talk about a Heinz Ketchup consumer generated ad contest.  That same day I wrote about the Heinz contest for the ThirdWay Advertising Blog.   Then this week I fulfilled a long-standing promise to travel to Pittsburgh and speak to the American Marketing Association chapter there.  It turns out that Heinz is a sponsor and David Ciesinski, VP of Ketchup for Heinz who was on the Fox Business Segment with me (but whom I never met as he was brought in via satellite from Pittburgh while I was in the studio in New York) had actually kicked off the speaker series for the year that I was ending.  Unfortunately my stay in Pittsburgh was too short to stop off at Heinz and meet David.

Small world.
