Startupland: Madness, Brilliance and PR Misadventures

July 22, 2017


"Startupland: Madness, Brilliance and PR Misadventures" brings new insight about startup decisions, the good and the bad, from the external PR counsel perspective.  Co-Authored by Kevin Wolf and Polly Traylor, the book shares stories about their clients, such as the CEO who only wanted "to podium," the CMO whose pitbull tactics had them running for the door, and the founder who put more energy into his Twitter posts than steering the ship on a smooth course.  We interview Kevin Wolf and ask him about the three biggest pitfalls for start-ups and what can be done to avoid them.  The host is Jim Obermayer
