Leading off today was Adam DiMuzio, President and CFO of Red Rook, a tech company that focuses on increasing commerce capacity across 5 channels: web, in-store, mobile, social and marketplace. They have hundreds of clients and a very fun workplace culture, one of the hallmarks of their company. With themed bathrooms and a basketball court, Red Rook experiences very little employee turnover because they make it fun to work there. They are not currently hiring though. Adam will also be featured as one of our Experts in the TBBO Main Event being held June 1st from 5 to 7:30pm at the Centre Club. The event focuses on leadership books and how to implement their strategies and he will be discussing “Great by Choice” by Jim Collins.

At 8am, Chris Krimitsos, Founder of TBBO, joined the #MorningDiscussion. Chris was on assignment so to speak this weekend traveling across Florida with his film crew as they gathered more content for the upcoming podcasting documentary, “The Messengers”. He spent time with Glenn Hebert, Founder of the Horse Radio Network, and also checked in with the team at Buzzsprout in Jacksonville, a service that helps get podcasters onto iTunes.
We then moved to a discussion of audio and video with TBBO members Joel Freedman, President of 2 Hungry Dogs Productions, and Roy Stegman, musician and audio engineer and creator of the podcast The Complete Audio Producer. Joel has over 25 years of experience in the video industry and specializes in designing commercials for business owners for use online and in social media. We also share a good light hearted discussion on the source of his company’s name and Jamie’s own fear of dogs based in his roots in West Virginia. Roy, a keyboardist and member of the band Alpha Decay shares some audio tips with us and fills us in on an recent opportunity their band had through local radio jock Bubba the Love Sponge.
