Boring talking head turned into great photo oppNo Comments |
Talk about making the best of a bad situation…Kudos to whoever came up with this idea: With Alan Greenspan scheduled to address 1,500 business people in Toronto yesterday as a guest of Canadian Economic Forum and sponsored by BMO, they hit a snag.
His flight was snowed in and he couldn’t get out of Washington, DC. No worries, they linked him in via video. They put the screen in a nice Bay Street looking-leather chair on stage. Then they added a suit. The result? A great photo opp that drove front page coverage of the event in the Toronto Star and front page of ROB in the Globe and Mail.
Check out the picture in print when you have a sec. Here is the link to the TorStar photo. A usually boring talking head shot turned into front page material. Nice!
