Our new Four Peaks show which “collides” the expertise and experiences of two thought leaders debuts this coming week on UWTV.  I’m sure they’ll post the full show to our microsite as soon as it airs on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Pacific.  We recorded the show last Thursday.  It was challenging, primarily because my goal was not to tease out our guests’ stories, but rather to have them join me on a fixed point further ahead on the horizon line (“Beyond Seattle ‘Nice’:  How is Seattle’s ‘polite’ mentality impacting the PNW’s success or failure?“).

Here’s the show description:

Respectful.  Collaborative.  A distinct lack of honking car horns.  Seattle “Nice” permeates the way its residents live and do business every day.  It’s a pleasant refuge from an increasingly rough-and-tumble world.  But given this globally competitive landscape, should we be doing more to claw our way to the top?  Or is our pleasantness sufficient to distinguish us from the madding crowd? What does this mean for the Pacific Northwest’s place in the world?  We’ll explore these questions with Adam Brotman from Starbucks, and Leigh Canlis of Canlis Glass through their business, philanthropy, technology and arts perspectives.  We’ll also engage on-camera with creative thought leaders in this provocative Four Peaks premiere episode.
