I know the title of this presentation may seem overwhelming, but I am here to tell you that it is not. Over the summer someone posted to IheartPGH about a new company here in Pittsburgh called Spreadshirt. I was thrilled to discover Spreadshirt as they offer a super high-quality on demand printing, and I was not too happy with the IheartPGH t-shirts that we were linking to at the time. Long-story short I know work for Spreadshirt and write the Spreadshirt Blog, if you are interested in t-shirts, technology or what we often have for lunch check out Blog.Spreadshirt.com. Spreadshirt has recently hired Jana Eggers as the new CEO and she is great. (You can read and interview with Jana here). Not only is she knowledgeable about all things business she is a great person to talk with. Jana and I have had a couple of conversations about socially responsible business and she introduced me to Nuts about Southwest, which is the Southwest Airlines Blog that is very well written and offers some great business insight on customer service. So I highly reccomend joining the Pittsburgh Technolgy Council’s Breakfast Breifing on Dec. 6th.
