Jim Michelson is the chairman of SMZ and celebrates 56 years in the advertising business. He’s also my father and that makes this a unique conversation. If you’re interested in a real connection to the actual Mad Men era of the business, Jim shows who’s the best storyteller in the family… by a mile. While technology has changed our business (and almost every other) the principles Jim reminds us about remain timeless. I hope you walk away from this episode with a better sense of why and how SMZ has quietly been making noise for generations.
