Jonathan Kleid of the Kleid Group of Oakland interviews artist Michael Killen. Kleid, an art collector and CEO of the Kleid Group said, “It is unusual for anyone to paint a plan, no less than one created ny the sixth largest economy. You’d have to have deep and broad knowledge of the climate and of planning. And, you better have artist talent.” Jonathan’s guest is Michael Killen.
Obama’s Undersecretary Dept. of Energy, Dr. Lynn Orr, shares his vision of the journey to the clean energy economy and market opportunity. And, he discusses California’s Climate Plan w. artist who is painting that plan, to help the state share its message.
Michael Killen envisions California’s Climate Plan as a ‘Branding Horse’ suppliers including advertisers, electricity, energy, financial services, information technology, investment services, management consulting, materials, information technology, social media suppliers can ride now, and long into the future. Competitive advantage, market share, sales, costs, return on investment are all at play here.
It won’t be easy for all suppliers to add the qualities of the California’s Climate Plan’s brand to their brand. Michael Killen has created a service that will help a few suppliers suceed here.
The ‘California’s Climate Plan: Choice Between a Cannon and a Thunderbolt’ will help influencers and decision-makers at events, on the internet and in the press and media deepen and broaden their understanding of the plan. The service is based heavily on Michael’s ability to interpret the plan in imagery and contexts that are meaningful to influencers and decision makers. It includes the internet, radio, and TV; and a vast achieve of programming that helps to increase reach.
