“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”

– Sun Tzu, the Art of War

*** Wounded Warrior Project:

As you know, I shared with you all the effort by the Greater Washington Chapter of the Surface Navy Association to raise $30,000 to buy a wheelchair conversion van for Operation Second Chance to transport recovering wounded vets from Iraq and Afghanistan so they can attend sporting events, entertainment, movies, go out to dinner or make appointments. I can tell you that we achieved our goal. Cindy McGrew, director of OSC, attended the SNA luncheon on Friday (Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Rick West was the speaker), with three soldiers. The van was parked out front, and we could all take a look at it. Cindy said that our effort raised more than $35,000.

I know that many of your JOTW subscribers were aware of this fund drive and contributed to the cause. I thank you. With your help we succeeded.

I sat at a table with one of the soldiers on Friday. He looked okay to me, until he had to take off his prosthetic device and put ice on his leg.

*** Rock ‘n roll trivia:

This creative genius started playing the piano when he was three, and was playing in pubs when he was 15. An accomplished vocalist, he failed an audition to be the lead singer for King Crimson. As a session musician, he plays keyboards on piano on The Hollies' classics “He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother.” He and his long-time songwriting partner wrote the sound track to the film Friends, and would later collaborate for the soundtrack to another film which would become the “highest-grossing traditionally-animated feature of all time.” He became known for his elaborate arrangements, outrageous fashion sense (his 50th birthday party costume cost $80K) and glam rock lifestyle, as he filled stadiums for his concerts around the world. He also performed successful collaborations with Kiki Dee, Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Tammy Wynette and RuPaul, to name a few. His AIDS foundation supports care and education.

His favorite team is the Watford Football Club. He once said that everyone is bisexual to a degree. When accused of being a child molester in a tabloid, he responded, “You can call me a fat, balding, talentless old queen who can't sing — but you can't tell lies about me.”

(Answer? The answer is posted now on the JOTW webpage. Visit www.nedsjotw.com. Read previous questions and answers at http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/JOTWRocknRollTriviaQuiz.)

*** Last week’s Trivia Quiz:

Ned,

I can't imagine you weren't swamped with people correctly responding “David Bowie” as the answer to this week's trivia quiz, especially given how ubiquitous his duet version of “The Little Drummer Boy” with Bing Crosby has now become on the radio each Christmas. Still, I greatly admired your clever wordplay when you said his career had “zigged” in different directions — an obvious reference to his early incarnation as Ziggy Stardust.

(P.S. No need to include my email in next week's JOTW newsletter — I'm beginning to get a bit self-conscious about my repeated appearances. I would, however, welcome any specific suggestions you might have for corporate communicators in the greater New York City area with whom I should network. I'm now actively pursuing new opportunities because over the next two months UST's Communications department is being dissolved following the company's recent acquisition by Altria Group. Therefore, any insights you can provide would be much appreciated — thanks!)

*** From Jack Duggan:

Ned –

Here's something that came across my view screen. It will lilkely be of interest to some of your folks.

Life on the mountain just gets more interesting. Friday BLM announced they are releasing (after more than seven years since beginning) the DRAFT EIS for the Timber Mountain/John's Peak OHV designation. This proposed designation would completely surround our property. BLM did an admirable job with their first press release in framing the discussion as a reduction of use, but for those of us who can see past the spin it still means more dirt bikes trespassing on our land. So I am girding for battle.

Hope all is well with you.

Walk in Peace – Jack

16.) Chief Communications Officer, Bryn Mawr College, Bryn Mawr, PA

Description Bryn Mawr College, one of the nation's most prestigious liberal arts institutions, seeks a strategic, innovative and collaborative marketing and public affairs professional to lead a comprehensive integrated marketing and communications effort. The new Chief Communications Officer (CCO) will build a cohesive brand for the College and elevate the visibility of its faculty, students, alumnae/i, and distinctive programs at local, national and international levels. The successful result of these efforts will contribute to: increasing and diversifying undergraduate and graduate enrollments; deepening alumnae/i loyalty and engagement, expanding philanthropic support; and strengthening the College's position as a vital force in the advancement of women and a leading voice for women's education and women's issues.

Over the past decade Bryn Mawr has grown undergraduate applications by 40 percent, increased its endowment by 75 percent and exceeded the ambitious $225 million goal of its recently completed capital campaign. Bryn Mawr has also increased student retention, initiated interdisciplinary programs and faculty positions, improved student life, made a powerful commitment to diversity and cross-cultural communication, and renovated many campus buildings.

In February of 2008, the Board of Trustees of Bryn Mawr College unanimously appointed Jane Dammen McAuliffe, Dean of Georgetown College at Georgetown University and an internationally known scholar of Islamic studies, as its eighth president. President McAuliffe and her cabinet will work closely with the Board of Trustees to envision new horizons for the College, significantly enhancing its national and international profile, and further solidifying its financial strength.

Reporting directly to the President and serving as a cabinet member, the CCO will coordinate communication in a targeted, cohesive, and open manner with Bryn Mawr's myriad constituencies including prospective students and parents, faculty, alumnae/i, trustees and volunteer leadership, friends and benefactors of the College, community organizations, peer institutions, government officials, and news media. Leading candidates will have demonstrated achievement in developing and implementing an integrated marketing and communications strategy which resulted in measurable impact to a complex organization. They will have broad experience in strategic marketing, communication planning, media and government relations, crisis management, and new media technologies. Leading candidates also will have a keen ability to articulate and advance the College's mission and purpose in collaboration with faculty, students, alumnae/i and staff. They must be able to communicate effectively the needs, achievements, and contributions of a multi-faceted and rigorous teaching environment to a diverse set of external constituents.

This search is being led by Jack Gorman with Tracy D. Welsh.
