WHAT THEY SAID: Do you love your job?

Utah Olympic ParkMarketing speaker and bestselling author of The New Rules of Marketing and PR and the new book World Wide Rave, David Meerman Scott, recently visited the Utah Olympic Park. Here is an excerpt from his blog:

This week I was in Park City Utah. I presented to a group of executives and marketers at Powdr Corporation, owners of Park City Mountain Resort, Killington, Pico, Mt. Bachelor and other resorts. Every single person I met loved what they do. Hey, if you are a skiing fanatic, what better place to be a marketer than a ski resort?

I also met Jennifer Clarke who is in public relations at Utah Olympic Park. Can you imagine how cool it would be to work at the 2002 Winter Olympic venue for Bobsled, Skeleton, Luge, Nordic Ski Jumping, and Freestyle Skiing?

Jennifer arranged for me to fulfill a childhood dream and take a bobsled ride. I went on the Utah Olympic Park “Comet” bobsled ride with a trained pilot who drove me through 15 curves, reaching speeds up to 70 mph, and pulling close to 4 G’s of force. Now I want to come back and do it in the winter.
