NYC One Show

2 Jun

After being selected to present our Long’s Horseradish campaign at the One Show 2009 Client Pitch Competition, it was time to buy a plane ticket.

One of the best perks of the trip was booking a room at the Ace Hotel; however, it wasn’t open so instead they set us up at the swanky Hudson Hotel. There was no way any of us could normally afford it, that Ace for paying the difference.Central Park

It was a great opportunity to enjoy the city with people I love to hang out with. We found a city strange enough for even our motley group.

Navigating the subways and streets was one of my favorite parts, it even became a challenge when my trusted BlackBerry lost service underground.

During the portfolio review, I gained insight in what my peers were doing when introduced to the same difficulties that occur when putting a portfolio together.

Thursday, Rachel Hom, Megan Nuttall, and I presented our Long’s pitch. I could have been more pleased with how it turned out and it was great to have the support of our Oregon friends there. Not being select for the pencil was not a big deal, we learned a lot from our experience of branding horseradish.

My take aways from the trip were: great work = great ideas, enjoy life 100% of the time, I have an awesome group of supporters, friends, dance partners.
