*Update- the article I'd originally read and intended to post, which is much more relevent, is this one: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/lines-drawn-for-canadian-pacific-showdown/article2431359/
Thinking about it a little more, if there were to be some kind of national magazine story on this (Macleans?), my image might make a good cover which could be a good vehicle for getting my work in more peoples faces....
Hmmm. Somethings just occured to me reading this thread and then making my way to the Globe and Mail website. This could be a fairly iconic image for CP Rail who are currently going through a proxy battle with Pershing Square Capitol lead by Bill Ackman for a change of leadership to CN's former chairman. Or it could become an iconic Canadian image if used well in the coming days/weeks.....
Here's a couple quotes from the article:
"After four months of 24/7 campaigning for management and boardroom changes at Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd., (CP-T73.380.450.62%) Mr. Ackman is expected to win a proxy battle on May 17 that will likely see some of Canadaís most influential corporate directors replaced by a slate of seven low-profile consultants, entrepreneurs and retired businessmen."
"Mr. Ackmanís legendary persistence is expected to deliver a boardroom coup that until recently would have been unthinkable in Canada."http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/careers/careers-leadership/the-lunch/bill-ackman-a-stake-in-the-ground/article2430424/
I had actually tried contacting CP last summer when I was selling this print to see if they might have any interest in purchasing prints for use as Employee christmas gifts or retirement gifts. I think I had contacted a marketing VP and was redirected to a P.R. person and though complimented on the image was told they only use sanctioned images from hired photographers and "would I please not trespass in the future".
Since then I've sold it to a few low level CP employees and actually had a close friend of Mr Cleghorn or Mr Green take my card to give to him should he like the print for his office.
So with this proxy battle coming to a head this week perhaps there's something I need to be doing with this image to maximize it's/my exposure ASAP....
