Miles Nadal, CEO and Chairman of MDC Partners (the evening’s co-host) interviews James Hinchcliffe at Airship37. It was a great conversation as James shared stories about his career, the influence his British born father had on his passion for the sport and an important piece of advice they received some time ago regarding distinguishing your brand. This has obviously played into James savvy social media comprehension and can be seen with his web presence alongside his Facebook and Twitter feeds.
