The newest role that CMO Sync is able to fill is that of the Simplicity Expert, which has been hailed as one of the emerging jobs of the future and a must-have by 2030.
Well I disagree. I feel it is a must-have now. In the ever-evolving, dynamic world we live in, especially with technology running rampant circles around its innovative self, streamlining the business process, at any level, to make it simpler is essential to having success and performing optimally.
Part designer, part math whiz, and part sociologist, the best simplicity experts need an understanding of how humans work to come up with new and creative methods of working.

April 16, 2014: in a F#%k the Crowds @ The New York Auto Show special event, GM provided a sneak peek at the brand spankin’ new Corvette Stingray Z06 and the Camaro Z28 for invitees and members of the Classic Car Club Manhattan.
The new ‘Vette sounded off with a beautiful ROAR when started!
She was unveiled in a sexy yellow and black color scheme with a fantastic array of close and subtle lines and dips in the body – many of which are lost in photos – as the art of the aerodynamics adds a lot of dips and flowing curves to sick lines on the car’s top, hood, and sides.
I was a lucky guest of Classic Car Club member and artist Fred Harper, who had no qualms about pushing the GT40 to a start.
You might ask: what is so special about these two new animals in the speedy General Motors lineup?
Well, to begin they are really freakin’ fast!
The newest ‘Ray sports at least 625 horsepower from a supercharged powerplant, 8-speed transmission, and the aerodynamic team devised a state-of-the-art design to tear through the air.
The 2014 Camaro Z-28 marks a return to the speedy models of previous generations with a 425 horses, 0-60 mph in 5 seconds.
The inside of the Z-28 is where the car blows away all of its Camaro contemporaries, as a digital gauge rests between the speedometer and tachometer (for programming your own super gauge?) alongside luxury and comfort previously only found in one pony car, the 1960’s Ford Cougar (a luxurious clone of the Mustang from the same years).
Part of the fun was seeing what drivable models the CCC had on hand, like their gorgeous 1968 Firebird convertible, their Cobra kit car, and, of course the infamous GT40, which emanates a look and feel of racing.
The CCC’s flagship location, where they hosted this event, is in SoHo, Manhattan, though it was started in London, 1995: Classic Car Club is the first club of its kind to give members the keys to the most staggeringly stylish fleet of cars ever assembled [http://classiccarclubmanhattan.com].

Well the Game Of Thrones EPIC Fan Experience of March 20, 2014 at the Barclay's Arena in Brooklyn, NY was truly amazing!
I did not dream I'd be sitting atop the Iron Throne, seeing George R.R. Martin in person talking about how he wrote Game of Thrones and playfully joking that he's "working on it!" (finishing the next book) while bantering with surprise guests from the cast.
The magical night included free T-shirts for all (tasteful), drawings for a custom Xbox One painted up in G.O.T. style (and a free credit card holder phone slip for entering), and yes you even got to sit on the Iron Throne and have your picture taken (no charge either), and I must say I felt quite at home atop there once the magnitude of the situation became apparent to me (see my picture).
All I had really wanted to see when I arrived was the Season 4 premiere, which was screened for 7000 lucky fans in Brooklyn two weeks before the actual show was to air on HBO. The long 9-minute trailer/documentary "A Prelude" that I had avoided watching for months for fear of spoilers was aired and got me pumped for the event.
The crowd murmured impatiently (have to love my fellow New Yorkers) and then a large marching band proceeded to the stage area before the gargantuan screen. With a tumble of drums and then a roaring of horns the entire theme song was played; I thought to myself: that's a cool introduction to this, but they had not even gotten started.
To the crowd's surprise and glee, the loquacious Hodor himself (played by Kristian Nairn) appeared with a microphone on stage to thank all of the fans for helping to make the magic! Many chants of "HODOR!" continued throughout the night.
I turned to my betrothed and shared the excited delight. But there was more . . . this was, after all, an EPIC fan experience and not to be outdone.
Hodor announced that the show's executive producer and writer of the books that it is adapted from wanted to say a few words - I immediately looked up, expecting to see a pre-recorded video of the great story-teller, but lo and behold a short, barrel-chested older gentleman with a big beard and a fisherman's cap walked onto stage . . . GEORGE R.R. MARTIN!
