Hollywood, movies, sports. You see it everywhere in LA. This week I experienced these characteristics of LA.
10.03.2013 - 17.03.2013 24 °C
My first advice if you visit LA for a couple days. Rent a car! The city is very big so walking is far! Of course I walked This week I had 2 meetings with the LA Dodgers and the Musical Centre. In addition to it, I hiked up to the Observatory and the Hollywood sign, saw movie stars in our supermarket and watched the LA Marathon.
Meeting at LA Dodgers
After a long walk (1,5 hour) I arrived at the stadium which they are renovating. The new owners invested $150 million to renovate the stadium. It was cool to go there and had a nice conversation with marketing director Erik Braverman.
Quote Dodgers: "Players win games - Teams win championships!"
Quote Mr. Braverman: "Never say I don't have time for it, but I can't make time for it."
Afterwards he also invited me to a Dodgers game at the 2nd of April. Lucky!
Meeting a muscial centre
Talking with an inspiring person? Talk with Jim Royce. He started his career as an actor and is now responsible for 3 of the biggest theaters in LA. His best advice sounds logical but is not that easy: "People and companies need to listen more and better to their customers. Especially with all the resources (digital) we're receiving nowadays".
In the night I was invited to see the play TRIBES in one of the theaters. Cool!
Tomorrow I will leave LA for 4 days and head on to Las Vegas! Let's see if I can become a millionaire
