All Things Orange Save the Date for The National Multiple Sclerosis Society Dinner in Baltimore



The Washington Times

eye catching orange SWAG* I asked my web gurus, “What is it about the color orange?”

Joe Carter from Evangelical Outpost and Jared Bridges from TruePravda both said orange is the new color of the internet, of the world, of marketing — of persuasion.


The coming of The Orange Men.

So I shifted in my orange chair at The Dudes’ foot ball practice, full of orange cones. Next to my large team water cooler, orange; full of Gatorade, orange.

My Nike’s have orange accents.

At the recent 25th anniversary of The Washington Times, all the SWAG was splashed in orange.

So my web guys highlighted my business blog at Managment Training of DC, LLC, in, what else? Orange.

Today, Your Business Blogger is doing a seminar at The Harbour League in Baltimore on Managing Management Time, and talking with my new best friend David Cotter from The National Multiple Sclerosis Society in Maryland. A terrific five million dollar non-profit operation.

He notes the orange accents on Management Training of DC, and connects this with the “All Things Orange” theme of the MS upcoming event on September 28, 2007. It would be difficult to miss the correlation.

Even for Your (partially color blind) Business Blogger.

Orange sells.
