Don Burdge of Burdge Cooper on attending Print CEO Forum

Published on October 12, 2010

Cary Sherburne:  I'm Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor at WhatTheyThink.com and we’re here at the 2010 Print CEO Forum in Chicago’s University Club and I'm here with Done Burdge who is president of Burdge Cooper.  This is your first Print CEO Forum

Don Burdge:  The first one.

Cary Sherburne:  And I'm kind of wondering if you can give us some feedback.  How is it going so far?  What decided you to come, those kinds of things?

Don Burdge:  Well I decided to come because I have been getting your blog, reading your blog and reading Dr. Joe’s blog and I was so impressed with the book that he wrote recently.

Cary Sherburne:  Disrupting the Future.

Don Burdge:  Disrupting the Future, that I said I've got to come out here and find out what else he has to say and what all the speakers have to say and I must say that I've been delighted by what I've been… actually I have been threatened or scared to death of what I've been hearing, but you can’t pass up what is really happening out there, so I think it’s been great to be in the midst of everyone who really seems to know where the future of printing is going and that is what I want to try to figure out is where it is going and to be able to tell my customers.  I think some of the value that I'm getting out of this is that I'll be able to re-blog and re-communicate to my customers where printing is going to fall into their marketplace, so as I'm talking to marketing executives at companies they need to know the kind of things that I'm learning here from you guys.

Cary Sherburne:  That’s great and so we’ll look forward to reading some of your blogs.  Are you on Twitter?  Can I follow you?

Don Burdge:  I’m on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and all of those things you’re on.

Cary Sherburne:   There we go. 

Don Burdge:  Yep, you bet.

Cary Sherburne:  We’ll look you up and follow you right away.

Don Burdge:  Great, all right.

Cary Sherburne:  All right, thank you very much.  We hope to see you next year.

Don Burdge:  Thank you.  You will.

Cary Sherburne:  Okay.

Don Burdge:  Thanks.
