*** Piranda naal vaazhthukkal to my friend, Umarani.

*** Trip Report: Dulles was very busy on Monday afternoon, but I had no trouble getting to the airport or checking my bags. I was ahead of schedule and so walked around the ticket counters, where I was able to make stereotypical judgments and observations of shared characteristics. For example, there were many Indians boarding the Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt, and I presume connecting to New Delhi. There were many people in bright African garb boarding an Ethiopian flight to Addis Ababa. Later, inside the terminal, everyone at the gate to San Jose had a laptop, and everyone going to Seattle was on their cell phone. Casually dressed businessmen were taking the Max-Jet flight to the UK, and tattooed and pierced football hooligans were taking the Aer Lingus flight to Dublin. Okay, maybe I’m kidding, but then again, maybe I’m not.

The security line was long, but it got much longer after I went through I am told. The process made little sense to me. I finally got up to the actual screener who asked me if I had any electronics. I showed him my laptop, already out for inspection. “Frequent flier,” he asked. “Enough to know to wear clean socks when I come to the airport,” I replied.

Clearing passport control and customs was a snap at Schiphol (a huge international airport that is actually below sea level) and caught the train for Leiden, then connected to Rotterdam. We were going to take the Metro to Leuvehaven but we couldn’t figure out how to buy the tickets (turns out you need to buyt a strip of them…we never would have figured that out), so we took a taxi to the Golden Tulip Hotel (qualifying us for planes, trains and automobiles in one day), checked in and had breakfast just as the buffet was closing. We checked out the town, and saw the world’s busiest port from the top of the EuroMast (http://www.euromast.nl/), and the EuroScoop at the top. Dinner was at noisy, packed Bazar, an exotic Near Wastern restaurant. I had mixed grill with couscous for dinner, and Algerian pancake for desert. We walked down the Walk of Fame, with a host of famous entertainers (whose names you know) who have left their imprint in cement here (http://www.walkoffame.nl/engels/).

The conference on Wednesday was very interesting, and dinner cruising on the M/V James Cook was enjoyable and enlightening, as we saw much of the Rotterdam Port Complex. Managing water is the national pastime of the Netherlands.

The Golden Tulip is a nice hotel. The breakfast buffet is good, andI enjoyed talking to Sasha. “Is that a Russian name?” “No,” she told me, “French. But I am from Indonesia. I am from Maluku.” Another member of the wait staff was Gaytrie. I took her picture with the representatives from Suriname and Namibia. I told her I would create a website for her. “www.Gaytrie.com.” No, she said, “This is the Netherlands. www.Gaytrie.nl.” Okay, there isn’t a website like that. But you can see Sasha and Gaytrie at www.nedsjotw.com.

The Golden Tulip food is good, but sometimes a surprise. A berry-mousse parfait is actually aspic and liver pate. The café au lait in the wine glass is actually morel mushroom soup.

I visted IMTECH on Thursday. After touring the two Royal Schelde Shipyards on Friday, connecting between them on the 1910-built Hydrograff (www.hydrograaf.nl), I took a train from Vlissingen, the end of the line (some might say the end of the world), to Rotterdam Central, and then changed for Delft.

I met up with Mike Klein, Netherlands resident, JOTW Research Guru and driving force behind guerrilla internal comms blog CommsOffensive325 (http://CommsOffensive325.blogharbor.com). We had dinner at a Chinese/Indonesian/Surinamese restaurant. Mike is right. Surinamese fried rice is the best. Delft is a charming city, with towering churches, and one old church that’s sort of tipping over, narrow canals, and students on bikes everywhere. The Technical University here qualifies Delft as a “college town.” Mike’s apartment was once a classroom in a university building that dates to the late 18oos, with traditional Dutch architectural touches. The doors are wide, and the ceilings are at least 14 feet high. We went into a famous Belgian Beer pub, Locus Publicus, but we couldn’t find a seat. We went into a classic Dutch “brown café” for a drink but I can’t remember the name. (Note: Further examination indicates the pub is Taveerne de Burgwal.) Mike says Dutch has rules of pronunciation that differ from every other language that uses the Roman alphabet, making it sort of a combination of English, German and Martian.

We had Saturday brunch in Leiden, at the Stadscafe van der Werff overlooking the city’s main windmill. Our waitress was Barbara. Leiden is a quaint, charming university town. In Amsterdam we saw the many canals and busy harbor. We walked around the Red Light district and had Indonesian cuisine at Sukasari (our waitress there was Martina). The lamb satay was incredible. On the way back to Delft we stopped at Den Haag, paid our respects to the Queen at the Noordeinde, and took the tram from Den Haag to Delft, and stopped at Mike’s “local”, the Proeflokaal where Mike has a Gordon Scotch Ale in a thistle-shaped glass while I restrained myself with German sparkling mineral water.

On Sunday morning I took the train to Den hag and changed to Schiopohl, arriving on time. I checked in with United. Suzanna was having trouble printing my baggage tickets. She had to borrow the tape from the empty counter next to her. That didn’t work, either. So she had to print the claim tags at the counter on the other side of her. “What happens if that doesn’t work?” I asked. “We go for coffee,” she smiled.

On the flight home, I sat next to an engineer from Nepal, now working in the U.S., who builds tunnels. He was looking at tunnels in Austria and Sweden.

*** From Ken Jensen:

Ned,

I've been asked to make some recommendations on news monitoring services. I'd like to hear from the group on their experiences with companies like PR Newswire, Burrell's, Business Wire and others. I'm hearing great things about Vocus and something called Meltwater, but I have no experience with either.

We are seeking a company that supplies clips on a timely basis, preferably electronically. We also seek a company that keeps its mailing lists up to date and that allows us to tailor our mailings appropriate to content. If the company provides access to their lists, allowing us to identify and pitch reporters who cover specific subject areas, that would be a big plus.

Some companies, Vocus, for example, also provide a level of content analysis. Apparently Vocus also has software that is similar to CRM programs that keeps track of reporter background and contact history. Those services will be considered, but I need to know more about them.

Any guidance or thoughts from the nedwork will be greatly appreciated.

*** From Beth King, APR:

As election coverage heats up, Americans have many questions. Among those questions are concerns about who’s advocating on behalf of citizens and who’s keeping a watchful eye on the way tax dollars are being spent. From 1-2:30 p.m., on Oct. 4, journalists and members of the public are invited to a discussion about peoples’ rights and government spending, led by reporter Mark Segraves of WTOP News Radio in Washington. Joining Segraves on the panel are:

• Dorothy Brizill, a community activist and executive director of DCWatch

• Harry Jaffe, national editor for The Washingtonian

The discussion takes place at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G. St. NW, near Gallery Place-Chinatown and Metro Center stops in Washington, D.C.

The program is presented by SPJ’s Project Watchdog , a national initiative designed to inform the public about how members of the media do their jobs. Specifically, its goal is to educate readers and viewers about the importance of a free and ethical press.

36.) Public Relations Account Director, The Hoffman Agency, San Jose, California

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference?

Do you prefer implementing PR campaigns instead of absorbing mind-numbing spreadsheets?

The Hoffman Agency is seeking an account director with eight to 12 years of experience (including some agency background managing large accounts—particularly in the software enterprise or semiconductor space). The person must be results-driven and thrive on contributing to the success of others.

In this era when virtually anyone can evolve into a target influencer, we’re looking for an individual who’s not afraid to deviate from the norm. This means implementing creative approaches to establishing a client’s brand in both the traditional world and online. It also means capitalizing on tools ranging from video to social media as well as the printed page.

As one of the few independent PR agencies with global infrastructure, The Hoffman Agency believes effective PR in the technology realm comes down to “making connections.” Of course, creating true teamwork takes on greater complexity in a global environment. Toward this end, we've implemented what’s called a “building bridges” program and other activities designed to tune Agency staff members for global programming. Such a global mentality is part of our DNA and definitely makes a difference for our employees and ultimately enables our clients to “make connections” around the world.

If you’d like to continue the dialogue, send your resume and cover letter to Leslie Posada at lposada@hoffman.com.
