Sometimes in our shared work, we all know an important moment is coming.  Sometimes it’s a date on the calendar. Sometimes its an annual rite.  Either way, when these moments arrive, good communicators venture to maximize them and define the moments in an advantageous way.

The results are in – FCP’s March Madness pool

Written by FCP Communications on . Posted in Stuff We Like

At FCP, basketball is in our blood.  Little-known fact: the name Full Court Press was inspired by the many Saturdays Dan and his Dad spent watching “triple-headers” of Big 5 basketball at Philadelphia’s famed Palestra.

So it’s no surprise that FCP has an annual March Madness Pool – this year we year celebrated our 10th Anniversary pool.

We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2013 pool.  Dr. Eliza “Pippa” Shulman is a Boston doctor, a mom, and an activist for health reform.  She is also the sister of FCP’s first employee – Alex Shulman.  Pippa bested a dozen participants and for her victory, FCP will make a donation to Alameda County Meals on Wheels in her name.  Kudos to Pippa for her basketball knowledge!
