Hi Christine, I work primarily with business people who are already successful and ready to take it up a notch (or several notches). I'm especially interested in clients who are ready to expand their leadership into local and global sustainability, to improve and change their community and the world.
One client who is a senior executive for a major Silicon Valley tech company went from being 6th of 6 on the short list of CEO successors to 1st. Another has just been named CMO for an company in the West with strong environmental values and practices.
We just released a "sneak peak" of the event we are having for the wine & hospitality industry on May 28th, I'd love to have anyone in the group on this site join us! We're also looking for volunteers, which can be a lot of fun.
The event info is in the center column at WineAndHospitalityNetwork.com. We are having another on July 27th at Nicholson Ranch Winery.
Christine, Thanks for you nice words about Vode. Vode markets to lighting designers and architects. We usually sell through electrical distributors. Local business always gets friendy pricing...Vode is a relatively new company launched in August of 2006. We design and manufacture architectural luminaires for T5 and LED. We value architectural minimalism, modularity, sustainable design and, most of all, quality of light. Our company was founded by 3 guys with a broad range of experience in Lighting, Business and Industrial Design. Real Tom photo is now posted...
Hello Christine. I am back in town from the snowy Bulgaria and sunny London. I would be very happy to participate in Wine Online discussion. You can glance at Bulgaria's wine show at my blog - http://bulgarianwine.blogspot.com/.
See you at EDK. Thanks for the invite.
Thanks for your kind remarks, Christine. Petra invited me to join the network. We share a client who is also a member: Tom Warton of Vode Lighting. There are zero degrees of separation in this town.
Would love to participate in your Wine Online thing. I have a few opinions on the matter, one of which I posted here just yesterday: http://lennthompson.typepad.com/lenndevours/2009/03/first-social-media-basics-workshop-held-in-finger-lakes-wine-country.html
Hi Christine, see http://www.mobihand.com/homeSoftware.asp. Our best-seller list uses an algorithm emphasizing the past 30 days' sales, so this is a good way to see what's hot. Unfortunately Apple won't let anyone but Apple sell native apps for iPhone, so those are not represented here.
Super excited to see/hear about plans for Wine & Hospitality content sites as an upcoming session. I’d LOVE to be involved in the topic—being on the panel at least.
Over ¾ of my clients are wineries – across the country – and the others are in the food/leisure space. While we’re focused on the entire Consumer Direct channel—inclusive of all online marketing, social marketing, retailing and co-operative marketing – it’s reasonable to say that site creation & re-architecture is at the core of most of our client programs.
Here’s a couple of sites recently done (altogether or in partnership) by WMG –
I look forward to hearing how I can be involved.
Thanks for the great presentation. I will look forward to learning more. North Bay Biz is all GREEN this month. I would be happy to bring you a copy if you don't already subscribe. Just let me know and I will drop it by the office sometime.
Is that Jason G. G. in your photo? Far Left? I had him in 2005-2006.
He was very talented - mostly in sound design. I would like to know
if he is around. I could hire him for a workshop I run. Let me know.
I am DocsPopuli.com and .net - which are under design and construction with Judith Marciante here in Sonoma. I think the site you mentioned is .org. The basic idea, presently being shredded and reconstituted via valuable feedback from peers, is creating a curated home for well crafted non-fiction shorts that might run a time or two at festivals and then fall through the cracks of the mainstream media's interests. As usual, the most difficult part of "a good idea for the net" is a viable business plan...
Thanks Christine. My company is based in SF, but my husband and I live here in Sonoma. I have the flexibility to work from home 3-4 days a week, which has been fantastic. And I we are aiming to do that with the entire company so every one can stay connected and live where they choose.
Love the Wired Sonoma concept and your site, GoGreen. We've been hoping for something like this since we moved here a year ago. Looking forward to meeting you an the next event, in March.
Hi Christine... I wanted to offer my help in working on the CSS structure of the Wired Sonoma site. I've been in contact with Chip and suggested that we might meet next Thursday or Friday to talk it over. I know Chip is going to be away, but you and I could talk about it if you're available. Maybe early afternoon? Cheers, Judith
Christine - heard you were the brainchild of this network... kudos!
Absolutely agree with bringing awareness and resources to Sonoma. In fact, with 50 people in 3 days joining, it becomes clear there's a considerable base here already. Plus, from our perspective - food media - we live in a major food epicenter!
