IMS 2012 Danny Tenaglia World Exclusive
A few weeks after we received “that Facebook message” from Danny Tenaglia, IMS partner Ben Turner picked up the phone to see how he was and invited him to share his thoughts in more detail with the IMS delegation. Clearly as part of his message was related to endless traveling, it wasn’t appropriate to ask him to attend. Instead, the IMS audience got an insightful and heartfelt conversation with Mr T on skype about his future and about what he really meant to say.
