Dear Elena:

Thank you so much for the opportunity to be on your show and for the link to the interview. I appreciate it. My ratings on Amazon went up to #1 for lung cancer books last night and again this morning so I assume it was the podcast that made the difference in sales that pushed up the rating. I thank you again.

Thank you very much for your loyal Sponsorship of Horowitz Associates’ 12th Annual Multicultural Media for Multicultural America Forum on March 21, 2012. Each year, we strive to reach new heights by creating meaningful dialogue and strategic discussions about serving America’s multicultural audiences with content, services, and technology in an increasingly complex media and business environment. This year’s Forum was the biggest ever, a sell-out event with more than 360 registrants. Due to the overwhelming enthusiasm we received, the Forum’s agenda was extended to include lunch, a musical guest, and an extra panel.

The Forum’s success this year is directly tied to you and your ongoing support.

Best regards,

Elena – I want to echo Denice’s thanks for your wonderful review of our book. I feel you did an especially good job identifying the book’s framework in your first two paragraphs.

As we’ve learned from our research and continuing discussions across the nonprofit sector, the concept of organizational culture is not easy to grasp. Your review of our book will certainly help further its understanding.

Thanks again, Elena!

Paul Sturm, Coordinator

Elena the article is awesome! You captured the essence of the book so well and the layout of the piece is tremendous. I know how much work this requires. We are so grateful to you. I look forward to some interesting comments and hopefully questions from your readers!

Thank you again. Have a great day!

I would love to work with you guys again this year and see if there are any new initiatives that we can introduce to get both audiences more involved with our events. Billboard will be holding the Latin Music Marketing Awards again during the Conference and would love to get some more input from HMPR- you guys were huge in the awareness of those awards last year.

I look forward to hearing from you!

My interesante, Elena.

I think that overtime the recognition by businesses of the purchasing power of Hispanics may help improve other socio-economic indicators of the Hispanic population that currently don’t look as promising.

Thank you so much for posting Judge Sullivan’s book. I was trying to comment that recently I spent 5 hours in court observing Judge Sullivan and that I was extremely impressed with her dedication, concern, and care of the families and teens that she was in charge of. This book is very important and we hope that it will change the archaic juvenile justice system that exists ot. Watching Judge Sullivan in court affected me greatly and made me see that it is really not the kids that belong in jail, but that families who live in poverty have far fewer options to live than wealthy folk. When teens have to take 3 busses to school they WILL be late; when the mother is out all night and neglects, the kids, the teens have no role models. After being in court, I wanted to adopt these kids to give them a fair stab at life.

On behalf of Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News, I want to thank you for taking the time to support last week’s Eighth Annual Hispanic Television Summit as a media / marketing partner.

It is because of your role that the Summit was once again a big success.

We had over 400 registrants, with an average panel attendance of 240 persons.

About one-third of the attendees were first-time participants, and another one-third was returning after taking a year or two “off”. In this economy, this is a big accomplishment. It means that the subject matter is pertinent to our current business environment.

Personally, it was rewarding for me that you agreed to support the Summit. I appreciate the confidence and trust that you placed in me and my staff from Schramm Marketing Group, as the event’s producers, to ensure that your organization had a good experience.

We are always open to your suggestions and comments. Please, feel free to respond.
