    What is Eisner Doing Now?

    My next DL trip will be during the first week of June , so I clicked on the Anaheim Convention Center schedule to see if there would be any large conventions in town during my adventure. It seems the "IDDBA" (International Deli-Dairy-Bakery Association) will be having their Expo from June 3 to June 5. They're expecting about 8,000 folks to attend. No big deal, I thought.

    I clicked on the agenda, since I was curious as to what folks do at an IDDBA Expo. They have quite a line up of speakers scheduled:

    Former President Clinton will speak on "Embracing Our Common Humanity - Security and Prosperity in the 21st Century".

    Terry Bradshaw's talk is entitled, "Why Not Your Best".

    Dave Barry will entertain with "Dave's World: From the Far Side".

    And what's this?!!

    Mr. Michael Eisner will chat about "Leadership: Succeeding by Failing and Other Paradoxes".


    Those crazy dairy/deli/bakery cut-ups!

    Who knows what he's doing now. The guy revitalized the Walt Disney Company in the 1980s and literally brought it out of a slump. The end of his tenure at Disney was wraught with such drama that I wonder what he really thinks about it all. Is he thinking to himself, "What the hell happened?" because that sure is hell what I'm thinking.

    Succeeding while failing.....

    Yeah. That sounds about right.

    Thank you. Most Eisner haters tend to overlook that small nugget, and only remember the 'Dark Times' towards the end of the reign (where even the most generous supporter would admit that he kind of lost his magic a bit).

    I highly recommend Disney War by James B. Stewart as a great overview of his run.

    Don't think President Clinton and delis go very well together. The first time he came through Columbus during his presidency, he wound up getting a deli in a lot of trouble when he stopped in and it went all over the news.

    (The deli was serving a Clinton sandwich -- they weren't authorized for food prep.)

    Oh he does, and his upcoming guests are Howie Mandel (of "Deal or No Deal?" fame [NBC self-promotion anyone?]), and Steve Wynn (famous vegas casino builder).

    Don't Forget to watch this Wednesday, at 9pm/8c only on CNBC. And if you loved it so much, it repeats at Midnight/11c.

    I second that recommendation. It is out in paperback now with a new introduction. You sure do learn a lot about the Disney company after reading that huge book.

    I'm sure Wynn is going to thank him for letting all those imagineers go. So in a round about way I think Eisner is ultimately responsible for the revitalization of Las Vegas. If it wasn't for Steve Wynn picking up all those let go imagineers, we wouldn't have all those awesome Wynn casinos.
