Dreams to Reality: Thank You, Cindy Zwayer

The Ohlmann Group has been around for some time. Sixty-seven years, to be exact. And, when any business sustains that kind of success, it’s due in no small part to a strong core of long-tenured team members.

Holding our Heads High

On Saturday night February 16th, the annual Hermes Awards kicked off with an unprecedented sight. Seven musicians from six advertising companies joined together on stage to put aside their competitiveness, pick up their instruments, and just have fun.

Presidential Pardon Me: Climbing Out of the Advertising Rubble

Well, the Presidential election is over. And, while I’m excited about the prospect of catching up again with my more highly opinionated Facebook friends that I hid away the last few months, I’m still bummed out that about 49% of Americans think we’re going to Hades in a hand basket.

The other evening, while watching the Summer Olympics, I heard something that made my jaw drop. One of the expert commentators, a former gymnast, was elaborating on the difficulty of modern gymnastic routines.  He suggested that the moves that earned Mary Lou Retton, and, before her, Nadia Comanechi perfect 10 scores in previous Olympic competitions, would likely not even have…

Embrace the Culture You’ve Created

Last weekend, I had a chance to take a stroll around A World A Fair at The Dayton Convention Center. It’s a multi-day event that features food, entertainment, and culture from a variety of countries.  Embarrassingly, I’ve lived in Dayton about 25 years and it took the lure of some extra credit points from my son’s Spanish class  before I…
