Barb,
I think this is one heck of a timely post, especially leading up to Graph Expo.

You absolutely nailed it with this line: "The focus is NOT on selling print or even cross-media services-it is about proactively defining a client's needs and objectives and identifying new and innovative approaches to satisfy requirements".

I know that's much easier said than done, but it's a very important point.

Thanks again,
Jason
