    "Speak Up! Pledge" with Bonnie Low Kramen

    in Business

    The Speak Up! Pledge initiative is straightforward and simple. The Pledge is a call to action because speaking up is the #1 challenge in the workplace — especially for women, but this applies to men, too. Moreover, women too often remain silent about important issues that affect them, choosing instead to rely on hope that problems will resolve themselves. They will not. The workplace of 2015 is demanding and complicated for both assistants and managers, and it is only getting more so. Electronic communication is great, but it does not take the place of talking with one another. Having conversations is the only way to positively navigate the issues of our 24/7 work life.


    About the guest: Bonnie Low-Kramen’s career for the past 25 years was as the Personal Assistant to celebrity couple Olympia Dukakis (Academy Award, Moonstruck, Steel Magnolias) and Louis Zorich (Mad About You.) She is also a co-founder and former President of New York Celebrity Assistants (NYCA), a networking and support organization for New York-based celebrity assistants. As an author, Bonnie has written many articles which have been published in newsletters around the world.


    A New Jersey native, Bonnie holds a B.A. degree from Rutgers University in English and Theatre. She worked in public relations and marketing for not-for-profit theatres in Chicago, Atlanta and Houston before returning to New Jersey where she became Public Relations Director at Olympia Dukakis’ Whole Theatre in Montclair, NJ

    The Thomas Loop Radio Show - Ultraman/Hockey on AM-1440 WJJL 2/25/2015

    in Sports

    Wednesday's edition of The Thomas Loop Radio Show on AM-1440, WJJL - features an interview with author over the phones, Jim Gourley - in support of his new book, The Race Within - Passion, Courage, and Sacrifice at The Ultraman Triathlon.  The book can be accessed on www.triumphbooks.com. At the top of the broadcast - I'll be over the phones talking conference playoff hockey with Head Coach of Buffalo State College Men's Hockey Program, Nick Carriere.  


    Overview of The Race Within - 


    The Ultraman Triathlon, one of the most remarkable endurance races in the world, is a three-day, 320-mile race that circumnavigates the Big Island of Hawaii. With only 40 competitors allowed in each year, this invitation-only event hosts some of the most superlative athletes on the planet. The Race Within discusses the 30-year history of the sport and race director Jane Bockus, former Pan Am flight attendant who has never done a triathlon, yet has dedicated herself to keeping the event true to its founding spirit for decades. This book follows Jane, her assistants, and a small cast of athletes through an entire year—from the end of the 2012 Ultraman to the 2013 event—and shows how they faced new challenges to the growth and well-being of the event, and were forced to question if old traditions could survive in a world of constantly-evolving sports entertainment. Granted full access to the race and the athletes, author Jim Gourley presents a look at this unique event and examines what it means to truly love sports.
