Today's Notable Quote: "Work is Theatre and Every Business a Stage". - Joe Pine & Jim Gilmore, authors of The Experience Economy.
Work is Theatre. A model...not a metaphor. This thesis is central to the book and work of Joe Pine and Jim Gilmore - the duo who alerted much of the business world to the emerging "Experience Economy" with their HBSP best-seller in 1999.
Yesterday, I was privileged to join a party honoring the men on the 10th Anniversary of the book's publication. It was billed as a "TEE" (not "Tea") Party...and was a Birthday celebration extraordinare--including games and a massive "Experience Economy" Cake.
It was great being part of the gathering...renewing old friendships, and making some new "like-minded" friends. All in all - the event was a true "4-E" Experience (what's that, you ask?). Read the book--or better yet...pick up a copy of the book, and make your plans to join Pine & Gilmore at this year's limited attendance "non-conference" thinkAbout in Philadelphia in September.
