Want to get an art buyer to schedule time to see your work? Try this.

On a recent trip to Los Angeles, Lauranne and I met up with Wade Atkinson, an art buyer at Publicis in Seattle.  We were talking about the creative that was coming out of Seattle and where some new accounts had landed.    When we mentioned that we were planning a trip up there in March, he told us to give him a call before hand and he would schedule a show for us.  We wondered out loud if he would even return our call.  He said that of course he would.

Since we had our video camera with us, we jokingly asked him if we could get that on tape?

Of course, before we called for our appointment, we sent him this friendly reminder.  And, true to his word, he returned our call and helped us to host a fantastic show.  Thanks Wade!

    • Yikes – so sorry Bob. Yes, it is suppose to play and it plays for me. Any chance you can try a different browser? Just curious so I can let support know.

  1. Good work, guys. This video was the only reason I took your call. With the hard evidence against me I just couldn’t blow you off 😉

    Thanks for coming to Seattle and putting on a great portfolio show. Our team was really impressed by your work.
