*** Congratulations on your efforts to improve communication:

Dear Mr. Lundquist,

Congratulations on your efforts to improve communication. You may want to start by (1) proofing your copy, (2) learning the difference between “it's” and “its.” And how does one “share” a job? Is that like outsourcing?

From your unsolicited e-mail:

“There are 9,700-plus communicators in the network, andd we've shared more than 17,000 jobs since it's inception in 2001.”

*** Angela Sinickas, ABC wrote the book on research:

Angela is one of the very first people I ever met at an IABC event. She’s certainly one of the nicest. And I’m happy to say we’ve stayed good friends since then. I asked her a few questions about her attendance at the IABC International Conference, and about research as a companent of effective communication.

Ned: Will you be presenting at the IABC conference this year in New Orleans?

Angela: I’ll be conducting a pre-conference workshop on Sunday, June 24, from 1-4 pm, called “Measuring the Success of Your Communications.”

Ned: Will Sinickas Communications be exhibiting?

Angela: We’ve exhibited at every IABC Conference since we opened our doors in 2000. I’ve been a member since 1979, and this is one way we can support the association while doing something good for ourselves as well.

Ned: What kind of prospects do you hope to meet at a show like the IABC International Conference?

Angela: First, it’s a great way to see long-time friends, and to see in-person some people I’ve been communicating with online. The most useful part of having a booth at IABC is it’s the one chance each year prospects have to see hard copies of some of our tools that they can only see bits of online. They can skim through the manual, and see exactly what they get if they buy our survey tool or a focus group guide. The other thing I love is having people stop by who have already purchased a manual or some of our other tools. They have so many stories to tell about how they’ve put their learning to use. Of course, it’s pretty cool that they do that while other potential clients are looking at our materials, hearing unsolicited third-party endorsements!

Ned: What kinds of services are people looking for, and how can you help them?

Angela: The most common help people need is to conduct a survey. Because we do so many, we can get them a first draft very quickly. For some clients, we do it all. We’ll get it translated into eight languages, post the survey online, analyze the findings and provide recommendations. In other situations, they’ll post the surveys online or print them themselves, and have us handle the data-crunching afterward. For very large organizations, we’ve also been conducting research on their hundreds of communicators to help them find better ways to work together. Our network of associates around the world also makes us a one-stop shop for focus groups that need to be conducted in multiple countries while keeping costs as low as possible.

Ned: Do your customers understand their research requirements, or do you find that you must help them to see how research can help them in their overall strategic communications efforts?

Angela: I think communicators have become pretty savvy about where and how research can help them. They just need help in making sure the research instruments they use will actually get them actionable data rather than just interesting information.

*** I bought my tickets already:

Four seats section 216, Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston Red Sox, Sat, Sep 8, 2007 07:05 PM at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

*** Dramatic results: One step at a time

Date: Monday, 25 June

Time: 10:30 – 11:45 a.m.

Track: Communication Leadership

Soap operas, telenovelas and other broadcast programming effectively put the “mass” in mass communication. But can a daytime drama change the world without tempting viewers to change the channel? What lessons can be learned from popular programming that fosters social change and still keeps its audience coming back for more?

In this session you'll learn:

-How the strategic communication process is employed on a massive scale

-How careful research develops believable characters to deliver key

information

-How critical social messages about abuse, sanitation and HIV/AIDS are

conveyed through entertainment

(Thanks for contributing to the network. If you want to check out the website and get a link or follow-up info for these opportunities I will post them. I know it is an inconvenience to have to look something up to make it complete, but imagine when I get dozens of incomplete listings each week.)

*** Do you know Ned Lundquist?

Ned,

You won't believe this, but here's a small world public relations story. My wife Joan and I were returning from our weekly shopping trip to the military commissary and exchange at the U.S. Military Academy near West Point, NY. We deviated from our usual shopping routine by heading out in our Dodge Caravan instead of our more fuel-efficient Honda Civic. The commissary was having a truckload sale and we were stocking up on groceries. We also detoured for lunch — a mid-day date — in Cornwall on Hudson. Finally, still in a leisurely mood, we decided to make one more stop in Newburgh, NY before heading back across the Hudson River to hour home near Poughkeepsie, NY. We wanted to check the Newburgh-to-Beacon ferry schedule and plan a future river crossing and dinner date.

Even though the ferry had stopped running for the day, I stood in the small terminal reading the schedule when I heard a click, click, click of hard-heeled biking shoes behind me. Turning, I noticed two gentlemen in full bicycling regalia looking with dismay at the closed ticket window. “Oh, no,” remarked one of the men to the other. “What are we going to do now?” After listening to them converse in French, I asked if they had a problem. “Yes,” one of them replied, “The ferry is obviously not running. We are here with our bikes after riding nearly 70 miles today. Our car is on the other side of the river in Beacon. And we just found out that we cannot bike across the bridge here.”

Quickly sizing up the situation and learning that the two men were John and Pierre from Canada, I took pity on the two travelers and offered to pack them and their two bicycles into our fully loaded van (amazing what you can fit into a Caravan). They accepted gratefully and off we went to Beacon. Our worlds became smaller as we chatted and I learned that John taught public relations at McGill University in Canada. I teach public relations at Marist College in Poughkeepsie. The world became even smaller when I mentioned that I was a retired Navy public affairs officer. John asked, “Then you must know Ned.”

Now, any Navy veteran has experienced moments like this when someone finds out we were in the Navy and asks, “Do you know so-and-so in the Navy?” No, sorry, I did not become acquainted with each one of the millions of people who served in the Navy during my 25-year career. But, I have to admit, I could only think of one Ned out of all those sailors. I asked, “Ned Lundquist?” John replied, “But of course, who else?” Who else, indeed, and we began to recount our mutual friendships, the launching of JOTW, and tales of good old Ned. Sadly, we parted in the parking lot of the Beacon ferry terminal after taking snapshots, just as John, Pierre, Joan and I we were starting our own friendship — separated by six degrees from Ned Lundquist.

The moral of this tale is that, yes, fate does guide our destiny — especially in our ever shrinking world. Had Joan and I not deviated from our normal routine in at least a half dozen ways that day, we would never have met John and Pierre — or shared tales about Ned and JOTW. Worse yet, John and Pierre might still be pacing around in Newburgh, NY, waiting for a portage across the Hudson.

*** Signal in the air:

Ned, figured if anyone knows about Navy stuff, you do.

I strolled by the Navy Memorial in DC on my way to a meeting recently. Regarding the signal flags, do they have any special meaning? And are they always the same, or do the memorial “keepers” change them?

Also interesting to learn recently that “Anchors Away” started out as a football march. What would we do without sports?

Jim P.

(I don’t know what flags they have flying. But even random signals are specified. So, I’ll look into this.)

*** From Esta de Fossard:

*** JOTW Survey 2007:

I'm looking forward to conducting the 2007 JOTW Network membership survey in September. Last year we had more than 1,000 responses to the 2006 Survey, and many of our members won some totally cool prizes just for entering, even if they didn't say Ned was mostly God-like (although the majority of people do feel that way).

I invite you to contribute a prize for this year's survey. If you agree to contribute a prize, I need a brief description of what you are offering (it should be valued at $100 or more). I will select the winners at random from those who complete the survey and provide an email address, and the prize contributors will deliver the prizes directly to the winners. Those who contributed services or neat stuff got lots of blue sky for doing so.

*** Please update email, effective immediately.

I can’t change your address for you. You need to send a blank e-mail from your old account to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then send a blank e-mail from your new account to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

Let us go then

Let us go then, to a place where there are rays of golden happiness

That shine down upon tender, dewy skin,

Covered in light mahogany and coffee spots of darkened pigmentation.

Where worn kakis with tattered ends and faded tees are painted

With great skill with lush emerald stains

And round cheeks are scarlet red except for the delicate shavings of dead skin.

A place where a tranquil river welcomes all who wish to plunge into its sparkling depths

The crisp and invigorating flow, filled with life and nourishment.

Here the sun is overhead for hours, constantly heating the air,

Filling the woods with a worldly light.

With the melody of birds calling for a mate and the water rushing over smoothed stones

Creating a natural symphony of endless beauty.

The mythical beasts of fairy tales come to life, reborn in many forms

Resurrected by the sounds of the symphony.

There’s the frog prince croaking for a fair maiden not to change him back

As he will lose his dreams, the hope that keeps him alive

And the lady of the lake living in the form of a graceful carp,

Sings a silent sonata of peace.

Now the magic of this place takes hold and time halts

Bowing to the majesty this moment.

Soon the sun starts to drift from its position in the center of sky towards the horizon

While sky begins to paint a scene of balls of cotton, rose and lilac,

And a great sphere of flame disappears into the tree covered knolls.

The lady of the night rises from her slumber and her subjects begin the nocturnal ball.

These subjects clothed in many shades of gold and honey shoot across the sky

While the planets draped in sapphire and ruby watch the production thousand of years old

And those who are bound to the earth gaze with wonder

Their eyes and mind captivated by the shower of stars.

In the background the melody begins to change, the tempo of the day winding down.

With the river still gurgling like an infant,

Content with the simple joys of staring at its tiny tendril like finger.

The chorus beings with green knights singing their sad love song

And the crackling and hissing of the bonfire in front of us, the percussion of the camp,

Warming our small insignificant bodies.

Here we shall drink the russet elixir of the night in this magical kingdom

With its aroma permeating the essence of our souls.

Now we rest, so “Goodnight my friend” for the dawn of tomorrow comes fast as a thief.

And soon this will be a memory of a summer long gone too.
