This week on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire Exclusive interview with a top PR specialist "Al Leach to Brands in Crisis: Leave Self-Interest Behind"

By the time an SOS has gone out to PR and communications ace Al Leach to summon his formidable crisis management skills, chances are the desperate company sending that frantic Mayday call has probably come to disagree with P.T. Barnum’s famous belief that “there is no bad publicity.”

End of the week "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire: "Warriors' CMO Chip Bowers: Our Warriors Fans Are Family"
If the National Basketball Association (NBA) were to give an award for “CMO Working in His Dream Job,” Chip Bowers of Oakland, Calif.'s Golden State Warriors would be a shoo-in. The new plaque would go nicely with the eight awards bestowed on the Warriors at the NBA’s 2014 Sales and Marketing meeting.

Exclusive Interview with Frank Eliason, outgoing Director of Global Social Media at Citi, on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire
"CX Legend Frank Eliason: Empathy Trumps Tech"
Scathing critiques of bad customer service fly thick and fast on social media, so when the Twitter-verse lights up with spontaneous praise it tends to grab attention.
Such was the case recently when a grassroots effort took hold, aimed at drafting Comcast’s legendary customer service guru, Frank Eliason, back to the post he vacated in 2010.

This week on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire.com 
"Ask Lee Nadler where he's found the most career inspiration on his 25-year-marketing career and he might surprise you.
Nadler is currently marketing communications manager for MINI USA, where he happily leads a bunch of MINIacs, as the car owners like to call themselves. Technically, he is responsible for MINI's multi-channel marketing initiatives and manages the agency relationships."

Guess What Hootsuite's Founder Thinks About 24/7 Social Media?

Ryan Holmes can't walk on water, but he is learning to walk on his hands. And anyone with the tenacity to do that deserves some recognition — especially when he's also the founder and CEO of a social media management platform that claims more than 10 million users around the globe.

Holmes is the head honcho at Hootsuite, whose web and mobile social media dashboard helps individuals and organizations monitor, post and track results across multiple social networks.

Another "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire this week: 
"Phil Lempert: Not Everyone Will Buy Your Product"

Phil Lempert, better known as The Supermarket Guru to his legions of readers, radio listeners and TV viewers, has single handedly created an information niche where hunger for knowledge meets food for thought.
Lempert recently passed the 30-year mark as a trend watcher and analyst for the retail grocery and food industries. It’s a role he invented and has expanded and re-defined over the years to include expert analysis of consumer behavior, marketing trends, new products and the changing retail landscape.

This week's "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire: Call Sprint's Bob Johnson for Social and Mobile CX
"As Chief Experience Officer for telecom powerhouse, Sprint (NYSE: S), Bob Johnson wouldn’t dream of “phoning it in” when it comes to his depth of commitment to customer care. As a 17-year veteran of the company, Sprint knew Johnson was the man to call when they were looking for an uncommon passion for customer service, a boundless enthusiasm for innovation and a deep sense of mission."

This week on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire: Robin Zucker "Playboy SVP: Take Your Content to Your Customers"

Robin Zucker is a native New Yorker who ventured into the cornfields of mid-America when it was time to attend college — just for a new experience. So she argues that it's not all that surprising that she opted to make an unusual move in her marketing career: leaving Yahoo for Playboy Enterprises.

"Jay Bernstein: What Can a Business Born on July 4th do for You?"
Some people find inspiration in the shower. Others — like Jay Bernstein, the founder of Long Island, N.Y.-based Win-Win Solutions Group — find it on the Fourth of July … which is why it feels especially appropriate to tell you his story today.
Five years ago, Bernstein was heading to a pre-fireworks date with his wife and daughter. On his way to meet them, he said he looked in dismay at the number of empty properties, big box stores and failing businesses on every road he took.
