  • Went back and did a bit more observing of our kidsConclusion. I’m not sure what is more complex – their use of technology or their morals.
  • When asked, teens in the UK, US, and Japan say they “cannot live without” their mobile phones. Next their computer, then TVs, then gaming consoles.
  • AXE MUSIC - MOBILE SITEThe mobile site was created to provide a unique experience for AXE fans on the move. Users can view all the footage from the concerts, the latest news updates and enter for the chance to win tickets to the next show via their web enabled device.Key highlights:Mobile represents 12% of total AXE Music traffic4,400 sweepstakes entries received via mobile
  • This was a mobile application which allowed users to receive a ‘wake up call’ from an Axe Angel via his mobile each morning. The more you used it, the nicer she became (hoping to drive routine of using Axe each morning). A lucky few would then be entered to receive a live wake up call from Axe Angels…
  • We’re actually doing quite a lotBut it’s diverseNot particularly joined upAnd built around campaignsThis means we are missing opportunitiesTo continue momentum, create conversation and capture information
  • Thanks for coming to our session. My name is Greg Petrillo and I’m the CFO of Skillet Street Food. Josh and I are going to tell you the story of where we have come from and where -- we think – we are going.The title of our presentation is Evolving Strategy from “Open Doors”. The reference to open doors is one that came from my son, Carl’s high school principal, Kevin Reel. He told Carl that the real point of the college experience was to discover open doors that would provide him access to new experiences and his mission in college was to explore the open doors and turn them into opportunities that would, in fact, form, shape the rest of his life. I love the metaphor and it is a very apt description of our journey in forming a business strategy that is shaping the direction our Skillet Street Food life.A word about my background. I’m a corporate consultant type. Columbia MBA. 20 years IT consulting, mostly telecom. A lot of work with AT&T, seven years in Europe, did a stint at Unisys, several wonderful years with the Walt Disney Company. But none of that is as much fun as trying to breath life into Skillet Street Food.I am going leave it to Josh to give you the color of his vision and passion in creating the company. But here is a quick profile to orient you. We are a small, Seattle-based company that serves amazing food out of a movable Airstream trailer, outfitted as a commercial kitchen. In its original inspiration, serving street food, but now much more than that. We don’t have deep pockets but we are growing -- rapidly – and that brings its own challenges. We’ve provided some revenue numbers so you can see that we really are small. 2010 and 2011 are estimates so take them for what they are worth. 2010 is pretty well baked so I feel more confident about this. But we will explain where and how we see the growth coming and you can form your own opinion.We are going to tell you a bit about how we have dealt with the transformation of a company becoming a brand, how we have been able to create a relationship with our customers that would not have been possible before the advent of social networking technology, and how we have struggled with and are still struggling with being spontaneous and fresh and , at the same time, process oriented and controlled.I’d like to introduce you to my partner, Josh Henderson.
