The Advertising Show, America’s only radio program focusing on advertising, media, marketing, product development, branding and sales and customer relations previously invited CEO Futurist Patrick Meyer on their great show to promote his award-winning book and the facts behind his controversial “shift your game” campaign which created a big buzz in today’s technology-driven world.
Meyer, a regular guest of the radio show, was welcomed by the eloquent hosts Ray Schillens and Brad Forsythe who really gave a sweet introduction about the well-known marketing expert. The hosts interestingly affirmed that Meyer’s presence would be scandalously insightful and innovative that was apparently observed within the entire show.
The radio interview was decently productive and interactive. It started with a simple question in getting to know the guest on a personal level. “What is the most individual, single thing to learn from a Patrick Meyer?” Meyer said that he does keynote speaking and a lot of people approach him that he would be a motivational speaker. But he owed this confidence from his childhood years when he considers himself a “loser” at schoolwork. He admitted that it was an advantage to be challenged while you are younger to really strive and push hard to what you love doing. He believes that the challenges he met when he was a boy paved the way to what he is now. “I was able to overcome the past and speak in front of people,” he added. So he believes that taking up the stage and speaking in front of an audience showcasing his insights on digital, mobile, social, and e-tail marketing is a thing known to him.
