Palma 30th Anniversary
Thirty years ago I picked up a landline telephone and recruited my first copywriter. I then faxed his resume and a few of his writing samples to an agency owner in Raleigh, NC. Pretty soon I was sending portfolio cases to agency Creative Directors nationwide.
1,300 hundred placements and 12 cell phones later, it is 2019 -- time to celebrate the good fortune of a rewarding career and vocation in the advertising industry.
Please be my guest as we celebrate the good times with food, fun, jokes and stories. If I'm lucky enough to have helped your career, agency or brand -- please attend. The event is on 10/10/19 from 6-9 PM at Druid Hills Golf Club; 740 Clifton Rd. NE, Atlanta, GA 30307.
Prior to attending the party, please help me fight cancer by making a donation to the V Foundation. It doesn't matter how much you donate, just do what you can to chip in. One thing Coach Valvano taught me: it takes a total team effort to pull off an upset.
