    Post Conference Info

    Even though no one replied back, I thought I would share some thoughts. It was a modest crowd, about 2/3rds filled. Most of the crowd was age 45+ it seemed. There were points on the book that were discussed in closer detail. Some of his insights were interesting, specifically, he was surprised at how readily a lot of inside do***entation was just handed to him. After reading the book and listening to him talk, it's hard to not side with Roy and Stan. I asked if he thought his book may have brought on the hasty decision to announce Iger as the successor to Eisner. He said that he didn't write the book with the intent to change anything at Disney, simply to bring out the truths of the business, but it certainly has made an impact on current and possibly future events, good or bad. (Paraphrased) It was a great interview and can be seen on local LA channel 32. (at least that is what was said at the meeting)
