We asked Great Jakes’ co-founder and partner Robert Algeri, a longtime LMA sponsor and LMA Northeast member about why he is sponsoring the 2019 LMA Northeast Regional Conference and to what he’s most looking forward with respect to this year’s conference.
Why did you decide to sponsor LMANE19?
Everyone is going to be there! And where better to catch up with old friends and meet new ones? As a legal marketer, we feel that it’s a must attend event. And as we’re based in NYC, it makes a lot of sense for us to sponsor. It’s a way to been seen, as well as to give back to our community.
Why do you enjoy attending the LMANE19 conference?
We come every year. I’ve never attended and not left with at least one valuable new idea.
What are you most looking forward to with regard to LMANE19?
Two things really excite me: our keynote speaker, James Kane! He’s inspirational. I can’t wait to hear him again. The other thing is Brooklyn! It’s so cool that we’re doing here this year.
Any advice to those visiting NYC?
Take the subway. Visit the Brooklyn Promenade in Brooklyn Heights. And if you have some time between sessions, venture down the street and treat yourself to a slice of cheesecake at Junior’s.
What do you enjoy most about being a member of the LMA?
I think what the LMA does is pretty remarkable. I don’t know what other industries have, but I’m grateful that the LMA provides multiple ways for us to learn, connect, exchange ideas and develop friendships with our legal marketing colleagues. It’s a valuable resource.
