I've had the pleasure of hearing Gay Warren Gaddis, President and CEO, of The Think Tank (T3) speak at IMC 2004 (Internet Marketing Conference). Gaddis is a strong proponent of any marketer understanding all of the marketing channels from branding to interactive.
Formed and still based in Texas, The Think Tank (T3) has over 140 employees and Gaddis is known as one of the United States' leading female entrepreneurs. Her clients include: Dell, MSN, MTV, JC Penney, John Deere and Nortel.
Thanks for the head's up Howard.
