July 2016 Podcast

The July Podcast with Benjamin Hill, Mark Labban and Matt Heuer. Ben checks in from Appalachia, Mark talks about the upcoming Promotional Seminar, and Matt Heuer explains the devil in the details.

The July podcast features MILB.com writer Benjamin Hill.  Best known for staking out the ownership stake on the google term “Ben’s Biz” (try it), Ben joins us from Johnson City Tennessee and shares the scoop from his latest tour of the Appalachian League.

Mark Labban, also from Minor League Baseball, joins the podcast to talk about the upcoming 2016 Minor League Baseball Promotional Seminar.  The Seminar is a best practices seminar allowing visitors to network, socialize, and discuss their promotional successes.  See more on the September 27-29th Seminar here. http://promo.milb.net/2016/index.aspx

Finally Matt Heuer the Creative Director from 3 Point Productions drops in with one of his #TuesdayTips.  These tips help focus your efforts on creating the show possible in sports with valuable insight from the crew at 3 Point Production.  This month Matt explains the value of looking for all the little details that can elevate your show.

Cudo wraps with a look back at our July 2011 Podcast.
