Case Study on Chic Thompson’s Career

Chic Thompson’s speaking engagements for the week of February 9, 2001 took him from Amsterdam, to Manchester, London, and Edinburgh. He was both exhilarated and exhausted as he raced to board a plane for the last leg of his trip. Much as he enjoyed it, the current pace was unsustainable.

Virtual 3-Day

On a Wednesday night a major client called and said they needed 10 – 15 big ideas for their re-branding efforts and they needed them on Monday morning… (long pause) …and their budget was limited.

A virtual weekend brainstorm was the only option. So I called my two favorite brainstormers, one in Atlanta and the other in Philadelphia, and we spent a total of thirty hours producing the ideas.

On Monday morning the client was amazed and we were still “high” on the fast track assignment. “Wow… we created those ideas and we were still in our jeans and with our families. No airplanes, no hotels!”
