Did anyone else participate in the NRG review? Curious if they picked anyone or just had us all do a 200page RFP for nothing…

We did not. That sounds painful, though.


No, but screw that. Who the hell is going to read all of that???? Rude!!!!


Ha, believe they awarded a good chunk to PMG. That process was brutal. Nightmares on that RFP.

Additional Posts in New Business. The good, the bad, the ugly.

I find myself looking for a new role in agency / production company biz dev. I co-founded a creative production agency back in 2010. Grew it to a staff of 80 FTE, creating strategic content-driven campaigns for brands, tv networks, streamers, platforms, publishers etc. We developed and produced original TV as well. Around 2016 we positioned the company for sale and then sold in Jan 2019. After going over to the acquirer in 2020, I’m now free for the first time in a long time. What to do?

They want a meet and greet….the following week. The day before the meet and greet we get a list of questions (that aren’t easy softballs). Now 2 weeks later and nothing. What a gross feeling this process is

Fishies, I am hiring a partner in crime to help me introduce PETERMAYER to the national stage. This isn't your typical biz dev role - it's designed to be a hybrid/cross-discipline role for someone who wants to use their full creative, strategic brain and most definitely NOT stay in their lane. Know anyone that sounds like that, send them my way! (Agency is full-time flex/hybrid, but a desire to be NOLA-based is strongly preferred; however remote may be negotiable.)


Thoughts on winmo? Useful or crap?

Hi all! Just introducing myself. I’ve become a Bowl Leader here in the new biz bowl. Looking forward to it!

Please comment with a bit about you and your role. Thanks!

Hi all! First : shout out to the folks who sold the super bowl clients! Question for all. What tools are you using for biz dev? For finding clients specifically. We are a video production house so our needs may be different but we want to grow direct to client work as well. I know of winmo, agency access and agency source. Any other online tools you are using? Thanks!
