Check out my press release:
1. What do you stand for as CMO: What is your platform?
I stand for FF, LL, MM! (No! NOT French Fries, Long Lines, Mayonnaise and Mustard) I'm talking about Fun-Filled, Life Long, Magical Memories. As your CMO, that is what I would strive to create for each and every person I meet. As a life-long fan of Disney myself, I would love the opportunity to continue to spread my love of Disney, but in a different and much bigger capacity. In my trips to Disney World throughout the years, I have witnessed first-hand the excitement in a child's face when they meet their favorite character. I have heard the excitement in the voices of an entire family as they board a bus for the Magic Kingdom for the very first time. I know how it good it made me and my family feel when the Dream Squad granted us a Dream just the other day. It's this energy, created from pure excitement, that I want to bring with me as CMO!
2. How are you preparing for the next phase of the competition (the in-park); what do think you will have to do?
Total immersion into the Disney philosophy and culture, by way of the Disney World parks. Even though I had planned this trip last year long before I entered the Disney and CareerBuilder Dream CMO contest, it couldn't have come at a better time. I have been using this trip to: get great advice from current Disney CM's; observe human behavior at the parks and resorts; do a little personal campaigning; and relax a little, of course. As far as what we will have to do in the next phase of the competition, I read something but I am not sure if it was a valid claim. I guess I will just have to be ready for anything, and I am mentally preparing myself for a Survivor-Meets-Amazing Race type showdown Disney-style.
3. If you become CMO, what is the first attraction that you would visit at Walt Disney World® Resort? Or at the Disneyland® Resort?
That's an easy one! I would go straight to Aerosmith's Rock 'N Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios and blast off into all the twists, turns, and loops that symbolize the range of emotions I have felt during this competition. This has been an incredibly fun competition thus far, but there can only be one CMO. Because of this, emotions definitely run high. I'm sure all of the other Top 10 are feeling the same way.
