The King Street Marketing Group and Halls Chophouse are thrilled to present Mike Veeck, one of America’s and Charleston's most recognized marketing and promotion gurus, as the speaker for Small Business Lunch at Halls, Thursday, Feb. 7th.
Mike Veeck is the part owner of five baseball teams, including the Charleston RiverDogs, and is a consultant for one other. He has put fun back into baseball while proving his ideas are not specific to just sports. An advertising professional, Adjunct Professor at The Citadel’s MBA program, coveted public speaker, founder of the Veeck Promotional Seminar, and all around idea man, he will tell you how his "Fun is Good" philosophy leads to success in any business.
Mike will tell you why:
•Injecting fun, creativity and passion is so essential to business success.
•An understanding of customer service is the lifeblood of any business.
•An organization suffers when employees aren’t having fun at work.
•Having just a few people with the fun-is-good attitude can transform an entire workplace.
Veeck has spoken and entertained groups at companies such as the NBA, 3M, General Mills, and NASCAR. He has made appearances on 60 Minutes, HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, NBC Nightly News and ESPN Sportscenter, CBS Sunday Morning, ABC’s Nightline, National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition and Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
Mike began his baseball career with the White Sox and also worked for the Detroit Tigers and Tampa Bay Devil Rays. It is his inherited belief that anything is possible and no idea so silly, and that is how Veeck operates his ball clubs and businesses. Veeck has hired a dog and a pig to deliver baseballs to the umpire, a Roman Catholic nun to give massages, mimes to perform instant replays and locked out fans of the stadium to set an all-time attendance for the fewest people at a game.
