Creative Keynote Speaker …
The professor of Advertising at Southern Methodist University Compares Bobby to the television “MadMen” character, Don Draper, who came out of nowhere to become one of America’s most creative innovators. Unlike those fictional TV “MadMen”, Bobby is a real advertising “MadMan” from that era and still represents some clients he has had for more than a half-century! Bobby, an octogenarian, is now going to college for the first time. Not as a student … but as a speaker and lecturer. His enlightening and entertaining PowerPoint speeches often receive standing ovations!
In another instance, a college professor introduced Bobby to a large audience of wannabe entrepreneurs, saying … “Our distinguished keynote speaker is the award-winning founder of Creative Services Incorporated. He is going to show us how to take ‘Shortcuts to Success on Roads Less Traveled’. He should know … because while all the other kindergarten kids were still trying to figure out which crayons to use … Bobby Phillips was already a ‘Roads’ Scholar at Street-Smart University!”
Bobby will be making limited personal appearances throughout 2018.
