I suspect 2010 will be every bit as challenging for our industry as 2009 was – if not worse. For 2009, many of those budgets were established in 2008 before the crash ensued. For 2010, many companies have planned for a more defensive and conservative approach…hoping things will turn. “We’ll spend money when the economy turns,” they say. Good luck with that.
If Time Magazine is right – and we’ve just survived the “decade from hell” – I’m excited to see what innovation, creativity and wondrous discoveries lie ahead.
If I had to bet on it, I think we’ll continue to see a proliferation of folks going it alone, more challenges for larger firms, and a new 800-page book on the power of Facebook, just like its 300-page baby brother on the power of Twitter’s 140 characters.
The Bawmann Group recently added Lifeloc Technologies, CoverColorado, Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence, Total Community Options, TCO Foundation and Angus Mohr as new clients. TBG also led the launch of Colorado’s Campaign to End Childhood Hunger, an initiative designed to end hunger in our state by 2015.
Congratulations to The Bawmann Group, SE2 and Weise Communications for picking up the hardware at Colorado Healthcare Communicators’ 2009 Gold Leaf Awards. And to Bawmann’s Tammy Stratton who was named the CHC 2009 “Professional of the Year.”

Cactus will buy the Rocky and turn it into an anti-smoking, Colorado Lottery Web site for folks who are contemplating suicide or a change in careers.
Penny Parker will ask the DenverPRBlog for a job.
Several old-line big PR agencies will merge, close and cut staff the more. The number of independents will grow exponentially and most of us will wonder why we weren’t genetically blessed to make it on the roster of any professional baseball team.
What this means for the PR industry is relatively simple: selecting cheaper adult beverages more frequently.
It’s the Wild West again…
