Agenda 6.00 - 6.30: registration & networking 6.30 - 8.00: presentation 8.00 - 8.30: networking About David Eichler Many people call David "creative," which is just monkey talk for crazy and that's exactly how he likes it. Sired in New York, groomed in Los Angeles and educated at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, David is a mutt, but I still love him like a son. When David moved to Phoenix in the fall of 2001, I had to explain that all the parades and fireworks weren't for him. (The D-Backs had just won the World Series.) David is a member of The Phoenix Business Journal's 2007 class of "40 under 40" although most of us think his best qualification was that he hadn't turned 40 yet. He is a Chair of the Endowment Board for Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, and he also swings on the Board of Apes for Free Arts of Arizona, a local non-profit. David was a contributing blogger for Dun & Bradstreet's All Business.com and his (sometimes coherent) thoughts have been featured on E! Online, US Weekly, Forbes.com and MSNBC.com. He has also penned guest columns for O'Dwyer's, PR News and Arizona Business Magazine. He was an adjunct professor at the Cronkite School and regularly guest lectures at Mesa Community College. When he isn't climbing trees (or walls) looking for his next Gorilla-worthy idea for our clients, David can be found chasing after his circus dogs or snapping pictures for Fox Sports Arizona and CBS Sports Online. That is one big-ass lens.
