BATW welcomes PR guru Phil Weidinger to our growing list of corporate partners. Phil says his company’s focus is to “promote the serious business of fun” in hospitality, travel and tourism, events, golf and real estate. Along with that, he offers this refreshing look at his public relations philosophy, which includes:
- Inciting a riot, stirring it up, lighting a fire, leading a charge, changing the dynamic, motivating everyone to give their best.
- Providing “insight” for the most effective campaigns, media relations, creative efforts with memorable results.
Weidinger started his firm in 1985 and loves the profession because it reflects his energy, passion and pride for the work.
